  • 100 g fresh spinach
  • 3 large potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 piece ginger
  • 3 chillies
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For garnish

  • 1 tbsp yoghurt
  • coriander


  • Peel and dice the potato. Put the potatoes in a saucepan (salt well) and boil for five minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, but leave the potatoes in the water to cook.

To make the masala:

  • Peel and finely chop the onions. Put the butter and oil in a pan with the onion slices. Peel the ginger and chop it in the pan. Cut a slit in the chillies and put in the pan. When the onions start to turn golden, sprinkle the spices on top.
  • Mix the masala until smooth. You can add more oil if the masala begins to stick to the pan.
  • Rinse the spinach and add to the pan. Mix them well with the spices.
  • Drain the water from the potatoes and add the potatoes to the pan.
  • Stir the spinach potatoes well. Check the potatoes for softness. Roast for a while if the potatoes are not soft.
  • Pour the spinach potatoes onto the serving dish and garnish with yoghurt and coriander leaves.
