Aloo Palak

Hello!! Aloo palak is a very delicious, rich in flavor and creamy curry. When we were kids we had this cartoon named Popeye who was famous for his spinach eating habits. He would eat spinach and become strong. We often used to wonder if that was really possible and it is. Spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals, low in calories and versatile in cooking. Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin E and vitamin C. Most of kids hate to eat spinach but make this recipe and they will love it. So lets get cooking….


Boiled potatoes – 4 medium sized

Ginger – 1 inch

Garlic – 7-9 cloves

Green Chilly – 3 ( if using the spicy dark green chilly then only 2)

Coriander Powder – 1 tbsp

Cumin Powder – 1 tbsp

Garam Masala – 2 tbsp

Lemon Juice – 1 tsp

Sugar – 1 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp

Clarified Butter/Ghee – 1 tbsp

Jeera/Cumin – 1 tsp

Asafoetida/Hing – 1 tsp

Green Capsicum (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup
