Aloo Saag

I recently learnt how to make aloo saag a North Indian dish with potato and spinach and wondered why I hadn't made it before its easy to make and super tasty. Maybe not the prettiest of dishes but when its served like this who wouldn't want to tuck in. I made it with chapatti love making these as Jasmine helps me roll them, like play dough for toddlers.
Here's an old post with tips and a fun picture of her with food all over the floor! and a you tube tutorial 

  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 2 large potatoes, cubed
  • one bunch of spinach chopped or a bag 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger/garlic paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • olive oil 
  • salt to taste 

  1. saute the ginger/ garlic paste, with a little olive oil, add onion and cumin seeds for a few minutes
  2. then add the turmeric, and potatoes stir fry for 3 minutes add a lid and about 1/2 cup of water and cook/steam for 5 minutes 
  3. then little by little add the spinach it will reduce down
  4. then add the masala powder, salt to taste and continue to cook 5- 10 minutes until soft. 
This is a wonderfully simple Indian dish and super healthy it pairs beautifully with chapatti. We ate it with dal, okra and chapatti a fab vegetarian Indian meal. 

So go on dive in :-)
