Let’s talk about the ingredients for Aloo Palak Gravy

As I mentioned, the aloo part has been performed by baby potatoes. Actually, I was planning to make some kofta and serve them in spinach gravy. But I fall short of time and just fried few baby potatoes and added them to the gravy. And it was magic. The combination was perfect and the presentation of the dish changed drastically, making it a party recipe.

For the gravy, it is important to use good spinach. Choose green spinach with small leaves. To blanch it I simply added to a pot with little sugar and salt WITHOUT ANY WATER and then transferred to ice cold water. This helps to retain the nutrients as well as the color of spinach. Thereafter it was cooked in flavourful onion tomato gravy and finished with some cream.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
