I love this Indian vegetarian dish! It's easy to make, cheap and good for you! So, get doing it!
You will need the following ingredients:
2 Cloves of garlic
1 Tablespoon of grated, fresh ginger
2 chopped onions
200g potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 Teaspoon Turmeric
4 Tablespoon of ghee or butter
1 Teaspoon of Cumin seeds
1 Teaspoon of garam masala
½ Teaspoon of ground coriander
½ Teaspoon of ground cumin
2 green chillies (Deseeded if you prefer milder food.)
1. Cook the spinach in boiling water. Mash the spinach and place in pan with a little oil and add garlic, ginger, chillies and onions, fry on a low heat.
2. At the same time, boil the potatoes with turmeric and a little salt to taste.
3. Heat ghee or butter in pan, fry the cumin seeds and add the spinach/onion paste.
4. Add the above concoction to the potatoes and hock in the garam masala, coriander and cumin. Add a little water if significant and boil for five to ten minutes.
Serve with naan bread or rice for a exquisite meal for two. On it's own it makes a nice side accompaniment for a party of four. But if you need it for more people, just increase the amounts of ingredients and away you go!
So, pretty easy for a tasty dish, oh by the way garam masala is a hot paste consisting of a blend of ground spices common in Indian cuisines. You will find it in many large supermarkets and of course in speciality shops.How to Make the Tasty Indian Vegetarian Dish - Aloo Palak
