Stages of cooking

  1. Start with defrosting spinach first. You can leave it for several hours under the room temperature or defreeze it in the microwave oven. Then peel one onion and cut it into cubes. Peel and mince 2-3 cloves of garlic. If you prefer spicy dishes, chop one chili pepper with the seeds. Otherwise, remove the seeds before chopping the chili pepper.
