Aloo Palak ki Sabzi (Potatoes and Spinach Curry)

Aloo Palak ki sabzi or potato and spinach curry is a vegan Indian recipe in which potatoes and spinach are cooked together. Hence, it’s healthy and really simple to cook. You can have it with Chapati or Parantha. My version consists of thick gravy so you can have it along with rice too.

If you don’t like potatoes too much as it’s not diabetic friendly, you can reduce their quantity or replace them with boiled eggs. But, in that case, you put eggs at the end when all ingredients of aloo palak are completely cooked.
