Aloo palakComments : 1 Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Sonali Tags: Saag (Leafy Vegetables)
When I was a kid, I used to hate palak or any other saag (palak, methi etc. are fondly called in bihar). Whenever I got stomach ache, leg pain, or anything such,My father used to blame all those for not eating green leafy vegetables. Later on, when I went to hostel, I started swallowing palak vegetables bt now, I love eating them, only if they are properly cooked. Today, I m sharing the way I prepare aloo palak. Try it.
U will need the following: 1 large potato peeled & cut in small cubes, 250 gm fresh palak washed & finely chopped, 1 onion chopped, 1 tomato finely chopped,1 tspn jeera, 1 dry red chilly, 2 tbspn mustard oil, 1 tspn garlic paste,1/2 tbspn coriander powder, 1 tspn butter,1 tspn black pepper, salt to taste.
Heat oil. Add jeera & chilly. Add onion. When it turns pink, add potato. Cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic paste. Add coriander powder. Add tomato. Cook for 1 minute. Add palak. Cook for 3 minutes. Add black pepper. Mix well. Add butter. Cover it. Serve whenever u wish preferably as a side dish either with lunch or dinner.
