Spinach Soup

An old, but not forgotten classic..this dish reminds me of those years back when I was a kid(what else?)..with Grandma,..I felt fearless even when we didn't have much to eat..hey..simplicity at its best, packed with nutrients, no wonder it's Popeye's favourite!


Spinach - cleaned and cut
1 onion - sliced
3 cloves of garlic - sliced
2 red chillies - sliced
1 ikan bilis (anchovy) cube
some fishballs
salt to taste
sprinkling of fried shallots
4 cups water or more

Heat abt 3 tbsp of oil. Saute the onions, garlic and chillies till fragrant. Add water and stir to a rapid boil. Add ikan bilis cube and fishballs. Season with salt.
Add the spinach leaves and stir a little and then switch off the heat.Do not overcook the veggie. Serve hot,with a sprinkling of fried shallots.
