Palak Aaloo/ Spinach and Potato

I'm trying to incorporate all these various greens into my diet and with a husband with absolutely no liking for leafy greens I have to come up with tastier options. This spinach recipe is really easy and tasty. It only turns out good with fresh spinach although sometimes I have mixed fresh and frozen together. Hope you like this one.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

2 bunches of spinach leaves, wash, dry and coarsely chop
2 red potatoes, diced with skin on
One large tomato chopped
One pod garlic crushed
Cumin seeds
Green chilly-1or2
Salt to taste
a dash of lime juice


Heat oil in a pot. Add cumin seeds, green chilly and garlic. The add potatoes and fry for about 5 minutes. Add spinach and tomato. Mix well. Add salt and lime juice. Cover and cook on medium low heat. Greens will drastically reduce in volume. Keep stirring occasionally. Greens will release water. When spinach and potatoes are cooked uncover and dry out most of the water.
Serve hot with any kind of bread.

You can add chopped carrots,green peas,other veggies and some soaked dal to this and make a mushy stuff.I do that ... veggies and dal together.If you like garlic ... add lots.You'll like it.
