2 tsp Cumin
1 tbsp Garlic chopped
¾ cup Onion chopped
1 tbsp Ginger chopped
1 nos Green chilli chopped
2cups Potato (small, boiled & peeled)
¾ tsp Turmeric
1½ tsp Chilli powder
1½ tbsp Coriander powder
1cup Tomato chopped
to taste Salt
2tsp Kasoori methi powder
(keep whole) – 3 bunches Spinach leaves


Heat a pan and add oil. Break the dry chillies into 2 and add it ot hot oil. Sprinkle heeng and add cumin. Stir for few seconds and add garlic. Cook garlic on high heat till it just starts to get brown and at this stage add in the onions.

Give a quick stir and add ginger & green chillies. Cook till onions are half cooked, we do not have to brown them.

Add turmeric, chilli powder and coriander powder and give a quick stir. Add in tomatoes with some salt and cook them for 2-3mins on high heat. Now add potato cubes and toss them together.

Sprinkle dried kalooti methi and Cook for 3-4 mins and then sprinkle a little water and lower the heat and cook till potatoes are soft and completely cooked.

In the meantime wish the spinach leaves and discard any thick stems or wilted leaves. Hold the leaves gently and cut them into shreds. Add shredded spinach over the potatoes and toss them.

Remember that spinach will loose its volume once it gets cooked so what may seem to the too much spinach ultimately will be perfect for 2.

Basic ratio is that 10cups of freshly cut spinach after cooking will become 1 cup of cooked spinach.

Cook till all of the water from the palak evaporates. Check for salt and adjust. Remove and serve it hot with a laccha paratha or phulka.
