A recipe that came with my weekly vegetable delivery. I am reposting it here as it was first printed, but I prefer to parboil the potatoes before adding them to the curry. Great with rice and dahl. I often serve it with a paneer curry.
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 2 large potatoes, cubed
- 400 g spinach or 400 g chard leaves, stalks removed, roughly chopped
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic clove, coarsley chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cumin seed
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon garam masala
- olive oil
- Fry the cumin seeds in a heavy bottomed pan in a bit of oil and butter until just starting to brown.
- Add the onion and fry until it too starts to brown.
- Add the potato, garlic, turmeric, ginger and garam masala and fry until the potato starts to soften.
- Unless you are using a non-stick pan, you may need to add water and cover to keep the potato from sticking and to help it cook. The first time I did this 1/2 cup at a time and it took about 20-30 minutes but I now prefer to parboil the potatoes, which means you add less water and it only takes about 10 minutes to finish off from this point.
- Add the spinach or chard and cook until it collapses over the potato.
- Salt to taste.
Great recipe. I found I had to double the spices and add curry powder to get it to my taste. I added in about 6 tablespoons of yogurt when it had about 5 mins of cooking time left. Also added in fresh corriander at the end. Thanks for the recipe!
This is great just as written! Easy. Will be a family favorite!
Delicious simple recipe that has become one of my staples. I normally substitute in sweet potatoes which add in a whole new dimension. I do tend to precook my potatoes, as I find they take too long to cook otherwise. I also tend to add in more spice than it calls for, but I like kick.
