Hey guys! I have posted a recipe for Aloo Palak before but that was with gravy. This recipe is dry vegetable recipe. It is very basic recipe which can be made by anyone and using very simple ingredients. You can easily make this vegetable for tiffin early mornings and it tastes really good. This is a no hassle and easy to make recipe. Lets get cooking….

  1. You know as a child I was a super fussy eater and I insisted on eating meat with everything! My mother made a version of aloo palak with diced cubes of mutton in it! It’s been years since I ate that, but you did trigger some awesome memories!
