Saag Aloo

Recipe by Sackville
READY IN: 40mins




  • 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.
