Alu Palak Methi

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.

Serve hot.
