It can't get any greener than this

Spinach belongs to the class of vegetables that is not so liked by everyone, like broccoli. Made as it is, it makes for somewhat bitter taste. Change it's form, it is loved by everyone

A famous Indian dish is Palak panneer (spinach and indian cotage cheese). This dish is again a staple dish in Indian restaurants all over the world. I am making a variation here with potatoes instead of the Indian cottage cheese.




Ingredients:

1. Cumin seeds - 1 tablespoon

2. Fenugreek seeds - 1 tablespoon

3. Sliced green chillies - 2

4. Vegetable oil - 3-4 tablespoon

5. Chopped onion - 1

7. Diced potatoes - 2

8. Salt - 1 teaspoon (or to taste)

9. Ginger garlic paste - 1 tablespoon

10. Chopped spinach / palak - 2 bunches

11. Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon

12. Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon

13. Chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon

14. Coriander leaves - 1 bunch

15. Chopped tomatoes - 1

16. Cold milk / fresh cream - 1/2 cup

Recipe:

1. Heat oil in a pan.

2. Add the cumin and fenugreek seeds, chopped onion and green chillies. Saute for a few minutes

3. Add the chopped tomatoes, coriander powder, salt and ginger/garlic paste. Cook until the tomatoes are pulp.

4. Add the chopped spinach and some water. Cook for a few minutes

5. Let the dish cool and transfer it to a food processor.

6. Add the milk / cream in the food processor and blitz the vegetables. You will get a thick and creamy gravy.

7. In the pan, add some oil and cumin seeds again.

8. Add the diced potatoes with some turmeric and chilli powder. Add salt to taste.

9. Once the potatoes are cooked, add the spinach gravy from the food processor into the pan. Let it simmer for a few minutes.

Tip: As a variation, feel free to add some other vegetable like - baby corn. For meat lovers, instead of vegetables, try adding pieces of chicken or lamb.

Happy cooking and eating.
