  • Servings

    2
  • 1/4 cup oil/ghee
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 450 gms potatoes peeled and chopped into quarter circles
  • 1 small green chilly (deseeded chopped)
  • 2.5 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • Half of 1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 medium tomato chopped
  • 250 gms spinach chopped
  • Handful of dried fenugreek (kasoori methi)
  • Cooking oil

Method

    Add oil in a deep pot.
    On a medium flame setting add onions and fry until they are lightly gold.
    Add potatoes, green chilly, ginger, garlic, and spices. Mix them well and give them a quick 3 minute fry, stirring often.
    Add 1/2 cup of water and add chopped tomatoes.
    Mix well and bring to a boil then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
    Add chopped spinach mix well and simmer this covered with a lid on low for 5 minutes and then uncovered until the moisture from the spinach has been cooked out and there isn't any murky-coloured water left.
    Instead of stirring, swirl the pot to ensure the potatoes don't break.
    Allow to rest before serving.
    If you want a heavier ratio of spinach compared to potatoes, use 250 gms potatoes instead. You may need to reduce the salt and red chilly powder.
