Preparation time: 30 mins | Cooking time: 30 mins

Tomato(chopped)-1
Green chillies-2
Ginger-1" piece

Garam masala-1/2tsp
Oil-3tbsp
Salt to taste

Method
Put the washed spinach in a pan, add very little water (just sprinkle) and a pinch of salt. Cover and boil over a high flame for 2 minutes. Cool quickly, or hold under running water in a colander.
In a mixie, make a coarse paste of the spinach & green chillies. Keep aside. Cut the potatoes into big pieces. Heat oil and fry potatoes till light brown. Drain the potatoes, keep aside. In the same hot oil add the cumin seeds. When they start to splutter add the chopped ginger, onions and fry till very tender. Add the tomato and further fry for 2 minutes. Add all the dry masalas and fry till oil separates. Add spinach and potatoes. Boil for 10 mins . Add lemon juice and mix well. Serve hot with naan or parathas or even rice.



Note: You can add the potatoes without frying too, in doing so add them to the onion mixture, saute for about for 5 mins and then add the spinach puree.
