Method:

In a deep vessel container boil around 1 litre of water. To it add a pinch of salt and sugar. Put the palak onto the vessel and cook it without the lid for about 2 mins. Once it reduces in volume drain the water and keep the palak aside.

In another pan, heat some oil ,to it add the jeera, followed by onion and saute it till onion becomes translucent. Don’t forget to keep the flame in medium.to it add chopped green chillies, chopped ginger and chopped garlic and saute it for 2 mins. Then goes in the chopped tomatoes cook it till tomato soften.

Take out this masala from the pan.
