Aloo Palak ( Potato in Spinach curry)

Posted by Geetha on December 28, 2008

Palak paneer is a famous North- Indian dish prepared with spinach and Indian cheese. Instead of Indian Cheese – Paneer I have used Aloo (potato) here and added some heavy cream to give richness to the dish.




Spinach – 1 bunch

Potato – 2

Cumin seeds – ½ tsp

Onion – 1 (medium size)

Tomato Puree – ½ cup

Green chilies – 3

Ginger, garlic paste – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp

Cumin powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Chili powder – ½ tsp

Ghee – ½ tsp

Heavy cream – 4 Tsp or less than ¼ cup

Milk – 2 tsp (optional)




Grind the spinach, green chilies in a mixer and make a fine paste.


Spinach Paste


Cook the potato and cut into cubes and keep aside. Heat ghee in a pan and once it is heated up add cumin seeds and allow it to splutter. Then add ginger, garlic paste and fry for few minutes and then add onion and fry till it turns into translucent. Once it is done add tomato puree to the mixture and cook for 3 minutes and then add all the masalas’ (cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, chili powder) and fry till the raw smell goes and then add grounded spinach and cook for 7 – 8 minutes and then add salt, potato and cook for 3 – 5 minutes. Finally add milk and heavy cream to the mixture and cook for a minute and serve hot with chappathi or rice.
