Green Hara Masala (Gluten, Dairy, Soy Free/ Low Fat)

We were inspired after a visit to our local Indian restaurant to create a twist on this classic Hara Masala. This Green Hara Masala is packed with spinach, is low in fat and is super flavoursome. We enjoyed ours with rice and a drizzle of coconut yogurt on top.
