Aloo Palak – Potato Spinach Curry

Aloo Palak is an Indian Potato Spinach curry. There are different ways to make Aloo Palak. This is my creamy, non-traditional, vegan, and delicious version with baked potatoes!

Aloo Palak Potato Spinach Curry

Aloo palak is such a simple, yet utterly delicious meal. It’s a creamy spinach curry (Palak) with potato (Aloo).

Making a spinach curry is my favorite way to use up large amounts of spinach because I always buy big bags of spinach without an actual plan of what I want to do with it.

Also, dark leafy greens like spinach are important for skin, hair and bone health. And with this spinach curry, you’re giving your body a boost of nutrients like iron, calcium, folate, and magnesium.

This potato spinach curry is super quick to make. I like to bake the potatoes for crispiness and while they are baking in the oven, we’re making the spinach curry, which is also super easy and quick!

Ingredients
 
 

Potatoes

  • 10 baby potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil (or any other neutral plant-based oil)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Spinach Curry

  • 4 large handfuls spinach fresh
  • 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 tomato diced

Instructions
 

  • Wash the baby potatoes and pat them dry. Then coat them in oil, add about 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Bake them at 420°F/220°C for about 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the size). Until they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Meanwhile, let's make our spinach curry.
  • In a large pan or pot, add the spinach and cook it until it wilted (you might have to work in 2 batches because it's a lot of spinach). Then reduce the heat and add the coconut milk, ginger powder, salt, and garam masala.
  • Use a handheld blender to blend the spinach curry.
  • Add the chopped tomato to the curry and let it cook (bring up the heat again) for another 3-4 minutes until hot and until the tomatoes are soft.
  • Then add the baked potatoes to the spinach curry, give it a quick stir, and it's ready to serve! Basmati rice and homemade naan or chapati are THE perfect side dishes!

Wow! Such a quick and delicious meal. I bought an excess amount of spinach this week and this was perfect! I’m so glad there was enough for leftovers because I’m already looking forward to eating it again tomorrow.

This was very tasty. I will make it again but plan to adjust the seasoning by using a little less garam masala (just a personal preference). I added a little more tomato because I love them. Next time I think I will add bite sized roasted cauliflower.

I made mine with fresh ginger and garlic but followed the recipe otherwise. I don’t even miss the palak!
