Earthy spicy spinach complimented by crispy fried potatoes... Or make good use of all that juicy pumpkin flesh instead!



Preparation Time:

5 mins

Cooking Time:

25 mins


Fresh Spinach - 1 large bag
 Potatoes, peeled and cubed - 3 large
 Garlic Clove, crushed - 1
 Fresh Chillies, minced - 1 (or to taste)
 Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
 Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
 Groundnut Oil - 4 tbsp
 Black Pepper - to taste
 Salt - to taste
 Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
 Onions, sliced - 2 large


• Par-boil the potato cubes, then fry in a large frying pan, in 2 tbsps oil until golden brown on all sides. Set aside on kitchen paper to drain.

• Heat the remaining oil in the same pan, add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds and fry until popping. Add the sliced onions, garlic and fresh chillies and saute until the onions are golden brown.

• Add the turmeric and stir to coat the onions. Add the spinach to the pan and allow to wilt.

• Add the fried potatoes and stir gently to heat through, taking care not to break up the cubes.

• Once cooked, season with salt and pepper to taste.


"Dear Spices of India, Hi guys! Just to say a brief thank you for the speed of delivery - as above, I ordered at 10am on the 6th; my boss came into my office only 24 hours later with the package - can't get quicker than that! I almost thought it was a present for me from somone else, as I wasn't expecting you to deliver so fast! Very impressed indeed. (Now all I need to do is work out how to get the 6 boxes of Taj Mahal tea over with me to Paris, for my mum!) Thanks again, keep up the good work."
