Aloo Palak
Originally uploaded by wayfarer.


1 bunches spinach/palak
2-3 medium potatoes/aloo (i like mine more potato-y than spinach-y)
2 small tomatoes
2 green chilis (or to taste)
1/2 tsp. mustard Seeds/Rai
1 tsp. garam masala
1/4 tsp. turmeric/Haldi
Salt (to taste)
2 tsp. Cooking Oil

1. Wash and cook the potatoes. If you boil whole, then peel potatoe skin and smash them once boiled. Or you can boil in large chunks and mash them a bit.

2. Wash and chop spinach. Wash

3. Chop the tomatoes.

4. Put the oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and turmeric and fry well. Add chopped green chilis and fry. Add chopped tomato, potato, spinach and some water and stir. Add salt and garam masala and cook until spinach is cooked. Once it's wilted it's basically done.
