Tonight's meal was heaven.My dear hubby decided to make this dish and he did it with ingredients from the top of his head.It was the most yummiest palak-alu-methi I have ever had.
Here is the recipe:
Aloo (Potatoes) - 5
Palak (Spinach) - 1 Bunch
Dry Methi Leaves(Fenugreek) - 1 Bunch
Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Onions - 1 onion cut into small pieces
Jeera (Cumin)seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cardamom - 2 Pods
Star Anise - 1
Cloves - 2
Bay Leaf - 3
Oil - 4 tbs
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Boil, peel & cut potatoes into small square cubes.
Heat oil in a vessel, when hot add Bay Leaf, Cloves, Cardamom and Star Anise. Fry the spices till you get a nice aroma. Then add jeera and onions and fry till golden. Add the ginger garlic paste.
Add washed & chopped Palak (frozen spinach is also a good option) & Methi leaves; Add salt, chilli powder & turmeric; Add very little water & cover for 3 minutes.
Add potato cubes and mix it with the palak properly.
Fry until all water from spinach/palak evaporates & potatoes turn light golden color.
