Aloo Palak / Potato with Spinach


Knowing the health benefits of spinach i somehow try to incorporate in my diet.As cooked Spinach is more advantageous than the raw spinach with many vital antioxidant
vitamins, is rich in iron than any other leafy vegetables.Potato and spinach is a very known combination,aloo palak recipe is very similar to plak paneer recipe.But i have done very slight modifications to palak paneer and tried to get that authentic taste of Aloo Palak.It goes very well with rice as well as roti.
