Keerai Masiyal (Kadaiyal) | South Indian style mashed spinach

Keerai masiyal / spinach masiyal is cooked, mashed and seasoned spinach. It is easy and simple to make. I usually make this masiyal without dal - just cook the spinach, mash and season it.  Traditionally the spinach is mashed with 'mathu' (a wooden masher) but I like to puree it in blender. Any type of spinach like arai keerai, mullai keerai, pasalai keerai can be used to make this masiyal. It is a healthy and comforting dish and can be had with rice. I used the leftovers as spread for sandwich too.
