(Dry Aloo and Palak Sabzi, Potato & Spinach Sabzi)

The combination of Potatoes and Spinach is a classic one made in Punjab and other North Indian states. Potato Spinach Curry, commonly known as Aloo Palak Sabzi is made in several different ways. The addition of potatoes made eating spinach so delectable. Some people make it by pureeing spinach leaves and cooking boiled poatoes with it. Others make it with chopped spinach leaves, just like I have done below.

This dish is quite simple to prepare with minimal ingredients. Any dish prepared with potatoes makes an excellent combination with all Indian roti varieties. It also goes well with curd roce, lemon rice or tomato rice. Most kids love potatoes and would not mind eating vegetables combined with it. Do try making Aloo Palak at home and share your comments.
