Aloo palak ki sabzi /bhujiya – Quick and simple rustic style spinach and potato curry
Aloo palak ki sabzi is a classic combination,specially popular in North India.you can make it in so many ways, depending upon your choice. Some times I make a gravy curry with spinach or a dry dish to go with daal and rice. But this easy and quick aloo palak dish is semi dry so can be served with rice and roti both.
To make it quick and easy I have made it in the pressure cook, but if you want a dry curry then can make aloo palak ki sabzi in a pan/kadahi.
I have also posted few spinach recipe , Gobhi kofta in spinach gravy, Sindhi specialty spinach,lentil and mix veg curry- Sai bhaji , Himachali delicacy-Sepu vadi ,and Aloo Methi Bhujiya which is again a classic combination.
