Tried & Tasted - Aloo Palak (Potato 'n Spinach)

This week has been pretty busy for me as I had some final interviews for my MBA admission.Hope to hear some positive news soon. Coming weeks are going to be even busier with the summer vacation for my daughter and her summer camps/classes etc., ..and our India trip.. I can't wait to see how Chennai has changed.. I'm excited about taking my daughter to the places where I had been as a child..will be interesting to see her reaction...

This month's Tried & Tasted event is hosted by Jean of Kits Chow. Jean has chosen Meena's Hooked on Heat as the blog of the month.I have visited Meena's site many a times since I was introduced to food blogs and love her recipes. I chose to try the aloo palak from her recipe collections. I decided to use it as a filler for my pita sandwich. you can also eat it just as it is. A quick healthy salad ready in under 30 minutes and it tastes great..

Here's the recipe:

2 large bunches of spinach,chopped
1 large potato, sliced into thin wedges
1 small onion, finely sliced
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tbsp light cooking oil
salt, to taste


1. Heat oil in a deep non-stick wok and saute cumin and coriander seeds with garlic and onions till fragrant.
2. Add in spices and fry for a few seconds.
3.Throw in potatoes, season with salt and fry for a few minutes till partly done.
4.Add in spinach, and stir fry till it starts to wilt and potatoes are cooked through. Serve warm.
