    Chef Edlear's Note:

    This recipe is from Mridula Baljekar's 30 Minute Vegetarian Indian Cookbook. The leftovers make a great omelet filling, or eaten cold in a wrap. I usually forgo the dried chiles, and use a comparable amount of red pepper flakes.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil over medium heat. When it's hot, add in the mustard seeds. When they start popping, add in the cumin seeds, then the chile/red pepper flakes. Stir for a few seconds. ( I sometimes have trouble with getting my mustard seeds to pop. I always suspect that it has to do with their age, but I'm only guessing there. If they don't pop in a reasonable amount of time, I just proceed. It's never affected the flavor of the finished dish).
    2. 2
      Add the onion, garlic and green chile if you're using one. Stir fry these for 5 minutes, adjusting the heat down partway through the fry time.
    3. 3
      Add the potatoes and increase the heat a little. Stir fry for 5 minutes, then cover, turn the heat back down a bit, and cook for 4 minutes. I lift the lid and give them a quick stir halfway through this time. The potatoes and onion will be starting to brown at this point.
    4. 4
      Stir in the salt and spices. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and continue to cook for 10 minutes. Give a quick stir after the first 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add the spinach and increase the heat. Stir in the spinach as it wilts, then cover pan again, reduce heat again and let cook for another 7 minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove the lid and test one of the potatoes, they should be cooked through at this point. (if not, recover and cook a bit longer) Reduce the heat a little and continue cooking to evaporate any remaining juices from the spinach. Stir frequently during this time to avoid sticking.

      Wonderful blend of spices and flavors! Was afraid it might be too spicy for DH but he also enjoyed this tasty dish. Did fallow Chef Edlear's suggestions and used crushed red pepper flakes (1/4 teaspoon for DH's sake) and left out the green chili pepper again thinking of DH, other than fallowing those two suggestion made as written. Will be making this again, thanks for posting it.
