Aloo palak is a very very simple, but tasty dish. Always we will have potatoes at home..and spinach is available throughout the year. Spinach is soft..or potatoes are soft??? Both vying with each other with their soft texture in this dish.... So, this dish can be whipped up in a jiffy for rotis. Goes well with Jeera rice or peas pulav too.
This is my daughter's recipe.................of course, her recipe is her mom's!!
Please check out my other side dishes for rotis here
Please check my Glossary for any unknown terms

Spinach - 2 bundles, washed and chopped
Potatoes - 6
Onion - 1, chopped fine
Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Ginger paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Jeera/cumin powder - 2 tsps
Coriander powder - 2 tsps
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Cooking oil - 4 tsps
Salt to taste

Recipe cuisine: North Indian; Category: Lunch/Dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 10 mts

Serves 6

Heat oil in  a pressure cooker, season jeera

After jeera splutter, add the chopped onion

Add the turmeric powder and ginger garlic pastes

Add the spinach leaves

Saute well, till they all shrink nicely

Now, add the chopped potatoes

Add the chilli, coriander and cumin powders

Salt to taste

Pour water, little less than the immersing level, because spinach leaves themselves will secrete lot of water, cover and cook for 4-5 whistles.

Serve this  simply  superb yet unbelievably tasty side dish, aloo palak with phulkas.
