Aloo Palak sabji (spinach potato side dish)

Aloo palak

A great combination made of simple vegetables! My son loves anything green on his plate, whether its spinach soup, green gram dosa, cooked peas… etc. This is one among his favorites and loves to finish up his plate very quickly which doesn’t happen that often. 🙂

The combination of potato, spinach and fresh ginger and garlic with the spices brings a wonderful aroma and makes you feel ravenous!

Ingredients:

Potato- 2 cups (peeled and cubed)

Spinach- 4 cups or 16oz pack (chopped)

  1. This looks like such a wonderful dish – I love the idea of adding warm spices to spinach (which I have never done) in addition to the cubed potatoes. I should really try your version of preparing spinach and experience a whole different way to enjoy spinach!
