Aloo Palak ki Sabji
Aloo palak ki sabji recipe with step by step instructions and video recipe.
I do not prefer to add potatoes in day to day vegetables (sabzi) that I prepare. But few sabzis tastes so delicious and different with the addition of potatoes in it.
Aloo palak is one of my favourites and I can eat even without roti or anything. I remember when we were kids my Mom used to give us all the sabzi (without anything on the side) to have right after preparing. This way we developed the habit of eating each and every vegetable. We never complaint and enjoyed our food.
Even now I enjoy eating every vegetable. My husband is not so fond of aloo in sabzi. But he doesn’t mind this version of palak with the addition of sesame seeds which gives the crunch.
This aalu palak ki sabji is vegan and healthy. The real flavour of potatoes and spinach elevates the taste with minimal spices. This Indian dry potato spinach curry is also a no onion, no garlic recipe.
I make sure to prepare one more sabzi alongside whenever I make this because knowing myself I finish this sabji even before we get on the lunch table to have a proper meal. I can eat it even as a snack.

Things to keep in mind while making aloo palak sabzi at home –
1. I like to make aloo palak in mustard oil. Though you can use any oil.
2. Cook potato till crisp. Cover potatoes for faster cooking and stir in between to prevent it from burning.
3. Uncover when potatoes are soft, cook on a low flame till it gets a crisp crust on top.
4. Do not cook spinach for longer time otherwise, it will lose its nutritious value.
5. Add spinach in big quantity as it reduces a lot after cooking.
6. Adding lime juice at the end not only enhances the taste but also helps the body to absorb the iron content of spinach.
7. Do not cook in an aluminium kadai as the iron content of spinach reacts with the metal making it unhealthy. If at all cooking in it, transfer immediately to another container after it is done.
