    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    I got this aloo palak recipe from, but have adjusted it slightly to my liking. It will serve two as a main course when served with naan bread or rice, or four as a side dish. If you like it a little milder deseed the chilies.

      Fantastic recipe! I didn't have waxy potatoes on hand but it still worked well with regular potatoes. I also cooked the ingredients differently in order to brown the onions and fry the spices as is common in Indian cooking. My cooking method is as follows: First saute the garlic, ginger, onions and green chili together till the onion started to brown. Then add the spinach and cook till it wilts and puree. Cook the potatoes without any turmeric or salt till almost done (I just cut into cubes and microwaved for about 5 minutes.) In a deep fry pan fry the cumin seeds for about 20 seconds till they start to lightly brown and then add the turmeric and other powdered spices and fry for about 20 seconds to bring out the flavor. Add the spinach-onion paste, salt, and potatoes and cook for a few minutes for the flavors to absorb and the potatoes to fully cook.

      I didn't blend the spinach mixture, just left it whole. I used a bit of oil in place of the butter as well, and used regular potatoes. Loved the flavours. Thanks!

      Very easy to make, however lots of dishes when you blend the spinach and onion paste. Next time I make it I will skip the blending. I found the texture a little offputting, however the taste is excellent.<br/>Will definitely add to my favorites.
