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!

Great recepie. I did not boil the potato but cooked them on simmer with a dash of whole jeera and coriander seeds powder. Then added the palak puree as suggested. Turned out great.

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.

This is a great recipe--easy and straight forward. I used about half the butter called for and pureed the spinach mixture a short enough time to leave it with some texture. I skipped the cream at the end but we dribbled individual servings with yogurt. It was terrific. Thanks so much.

Very good as written. The second time I made it, I doubled the potatoes; pureed half the spinach mixture and mixed the pureed part back in with the rest, so it is creamy but has texture. Will definitely add this to our regular rotation.

Great recipe! I use regular potatoes and fry spices in advance, in order to release flavours.

Fabulous. Even though I forgot to put the onions in, and left out the butter for the sake of my cholesterol. Seasoned to perfection. Thank you for sharing!

Sylvie, thanks for sharing your Aloo Palak, I made this side dish as a side dish with turkey at Christmas supper, I made Aloo Palak potatoes instead of mashed potatoes.
Of course it took more time and effort to make this dish comparing to plain mashed potatoes, but it worthed every extra step or work. I had made too much, even next few days we enjoyed them as leftover and they were as delicious as first day.
I will make this again and recommend everyone to try this healthy potato dish.
Thanks again Sylvie.
Santi
