Aloo Palak Sabji ( Potato Spinach Curry)

Aloo Spinach Sabji ( Potato Spinach Curry)
Weekday dinners are a herculean effort, After a long day of work, picking up kids from day care/school taking them to various classes I often look for something that I can prepare in time that it can take to get the kids showered and Aloo Spinach Sabji does fall in this category.
Potato's especially the Yukon type cook extremely quick and Spinach literally cooks in seconds.
Another variation for this recipe would be Aloo Methi, substitute Methi both fresh and frozen instead of Spinach

3 Potatoes peeled and cubed
2 cups spinach ,washed and julienned
1 tbsp Ginger Garlic paste
1 tspn Jeera
1 tspn Haldi
1 tbsp of any type of Masala's (garam masala, all spice masala or any home made masala's)
1 tbsp oil for frying
Salt according to taste

1. heat a tbsp of oil in a pan, add Jeera, Ginger Garlic paste and Haldi
2. Then add chopped Spinach ,fry till the rawness is done or spinach seems done partially usually about a minute or 2
3. Add cubed Potatoes, mix well with Spinach add salt and sprinkle a little water
4. when Potatoes are cooked add Masala, Mix well and remove from heat

Serve hot with Roti's, Puhlka or even with Rice

The dish looks good and the fact that you went through the eefort commendable. I usually cook for 2-3 days togethere, that way I don't have to cook every day. But mid-week I have to do something and this is perfect

HI Sreelu,
I got ur's from Sushma's site.
Aloo palak looks great, I usually grind palak but sometimes, when I'm in a hurry or lazy I just chop. Picture looks great. Everything in ur blog looks great. So you live in Sunnyvale or santa clara?
