Aloo Palak

Preparation Time:- 5 mins |  Cooking Time:– 20-25 mins |  Serves:- 2-3 people


  • 500 gms Spinach(Palak) finely chopped
  • 2-3 medium sized Potatoes (Aaloo) boiled and chopped in small cubes
  • 1 table spoon Mustard oil (Sarson ka tel)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tea spoon Coriander Powder (Dhaniya Powder)
  • 1/2 tea spoon Turmeric powder (Haldi Powder)
  • 1/4 tea spoon red chilli powder (Lal Mirch powder)
  • 1 tea spoon Cumin seeds (Jeera)
  • 1 and 1/2 tea spoon garam masala
  • 1 tea spoon Dry Mango powder (Amchoor Powder)
  • 1 pinch of Asafoetida (Hing)


Heat the mustard oil  in a pan and add cumin seeds and hing. Allow them to crackle.

Add the coriander powder, chilly powder, salt and turmeric powder to the oil. Now add the chopped palak & aaloo and mix gently so that everything gets folded in the masala properly.

Simmer the stove and cover the lid. Allow it to cook for about 10 minutes. Stir in middle to make sure that it does not get burnt.

Now remove the lid and stir. The vegetables will get soft due to the initial steam cooking. Now we need to fry them.

Sprinkle the garam masala and dry mango powder. Mix well.

You can cook for another 10-15 mins, stirring every now and then.  Allow a bit of it to get burnt, it tastes really well.. Trust me.. 🙂


  • Aaloo Palak goes well with hot chapatis/paranthas and curd.


Tasty Cooking..!!
