3-4 potatoes, boiled and cut into long pieces
1 big onion chopped
½ cup tomato puree
2 cups spinach, chopped
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon each – dhania (coriander) powder, jeera (cumin) powder, garam masala
Salt to taste
Take teaspoon oil in a skillet and once it is hot, add the cumin seeds. When they begin to brown, add the onions and fry. Add turmeric powder
Add the spinach and allow it to wilt
Add tomato puree and allow it to boil
Add potatoes when most of the liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and cook for further ten minutes.
Serve hot with rice, roti, chapatti or naan bread.
I prefer this dish to be a little dry and not have gravy as such. If you prefer gravy, then you could increase the tomato puree or add water. You could also mash some potatoes so the gravy gets a nice consistency and is not very runny.
This dish contains atleast 3 of your 5 a day vegetables (onion, tomato and spinach) and a portion of the everyday starchy veggie, potato. Happy Cooking and Dining!
