Alu Palak #sikandalouscuisine

Light and delicious - this is how we now cook alu palak at home and trust me , it's great to see the color of these beautiful greens on ones plate  and get their flavors as they are , and not slathered and cooked to death in some masala. Cooking just enough is the trick - here is what we do.

​250 Grams Potatoes.
250 Grams Palak - Chop in chunks.
1 Tablespoon Mustard Oil.
1/2 Teaspoon Mustard Seeds.
A Pinch of Hing
Dried Red Chilies.
1/2 Teaspoon Chopped Garlic.
1/2 Teaspoon Chopped Ginger.​
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi Powder.

1.Peel , cube and boil potatoes till just done.
2. In boiling water add  1/2 teaspoon sugar , blanch palak not more than 30 seconds , then plunge into an ice water bath to prevent further cooking .Sugar in boiling water helps greens retain their color. When cool , squeeze palak of ALL water - Set aside.
3. Heat oil , add mustard seeds , dried red chilies and hing , then tip in ginger garlic - allow both to just soften , not color . Now add all masalas and salt , and the potatoes.
4. Gently toss potatoes coating them well - cook covered on minimum heat for 5-6 minutes , don't allow them to color and then add palak.
5. Increase heat , mix and cook covered another 2 minutes. Serve !
