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!
Potato- 2 cups (peeled and cubed)
Spinach- 4 cups or 16oz pack (chopped)
Garlic- 1 tsp chopped
Ginger-1 tsp chopped
Whole red chillies- 2
Coriander powder- 2 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
asafoetida- 1/4 tsp
oil- 4 tbsp for seasoning
Salt to taste
Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Add cumin seeds, allow it to splutter. Then add chopped garlic, ginger, green chilli and red chillies. After about 6-8 seconds add cubed potatoes, turmeric and little salt, mix everything well.
Close a lid and allow it to cook until the potatoes are tender (about 6-8 minutes). Now add the chopped spinach and coriander powder and stir it well. Add salt if necessary. Allow it to further cook for 3-4 minutes.
Turn off the heat. Serve hot with rot is or parathas!
