Spicy potato and spinach curry (Alu palak)
Potatoes and spinach are an irresistible combination of taste and health. This curry is a great crowd-pleaser too. The fact that it doesn't take too long to prepare is an added advantage. Every time I prepare this, it vanishes in a flash!

Ingredients (serves 2):

potato - 1 large
spinach - 2 cups (chopped)
tomato - 1 (chopped)
ginger paste - 1/2 tsp
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
red chilli powder - 1 tsp (adjust according to taste)
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
oil - 1 tbsp
lemon juice - 1 tsp
salt - 3/4 tsp (adjust according to taste)


Cut the potato into 1 inch cubes. Fry potatoes in oil with a little salt till they turn golden brown. Drain and keep aside. In the remaining oil, fry cumin seeds and tomatoes. Add chilli powder, garam masala, ginger paste and salt. Fry for a minute and add spinach. Fry for a couple of minutes. Add potatoes and cook covered for 5 minutes. Squeeze some lemon juice on top and serve fresh.
