PALAK ALOO



Ingredients:
Palak / spinach .... 1 bunch - fresh .. or ( frozen 200 gms)
Onion ... .... 1 small
Potatoes ..... 3-4
Green chillies .. 2-3
Garlic .......... 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds ... 1 tbso
Coriander powder ... 1tsp
Cumin powder ........ 1 tsp
Turmeric powder .... 1/2 tsp
Lime juice ........  1 tbsp
Salt ..... to taste
Oil ... 2 tbsps

Method:
1. Cut the palak leaves, onion and green chillies very finely.
2. Peel and cut the potatoes into cubes.

3. Heat oil in a pan and crackle the cumin seeds. Now tip in the crushed garlic. Stir fry and add the onions. Saute for a minute.

4. Put the potato cubes, salt and spice powders. Saute for a minute or two.

5. Now add the spinach and green chillies. Mix it and simmer adding enough water to cook.

6. Squeeze the lime juice and mix. Alternately you may add mango powder.

You can even do the tempering of cumin seeds, garlic and onion in the end. But I do it this way in my day to day cooking to avoid consuming more oil.
