– I used frozen chopped spinach, so I thawed it in the microwave and then drained out all the liquid by squeezing the spinach. Keep this aside. If using fresh spinach, sauté it in a pan with a drop of oil for 3-5 minutes or until the spinach wilts and let out all the liquid and then drain out the liquid.
