  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 medium size onions finely chopped
  • 3 vertically slit green chillies
  • salt - to taste
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
  • 3 medium size potatoes finely sliced
  • 6-7 bunches of spinach leaves/palak leaves finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coriander leaves finely chopped


  • Firstly, in a wok, add oil and heat it.
  • Add finely chopped onions and saute for few seconds.
  • Add slit green chillies, mix and saute until onions turn soft.
  • Add salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, mix and saute well.
  • Cook the masala until oil oozes out and starts leaving the masala.
  • Add sliced potatoes, mix well.
  • Add chopped palak leaves, mix well and cook until all the palak leaves comes together.
  • Cook aloo palak for few minutes.
  • Add chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
  • Cook aloo and palak until aloo turns soft and palak cooks well.
  • Keep mixing and checking in between.
  • When aloo and palak turns into soft gravy and when aloo turns soft switch off the flame.
  • Serve hot with rice or chapathi.
  • Watch the video procedure above.


  • Wash the spinach leaves and aloo pieces well before adding to the curry.
  • Aloo palak can also be pressure cooked.
  • After adding coriander leaves in step 9, just pressure cooking the aloo palak curry for 2 whistles gives us a fine curry.
  • If aloo palak is not made in pressure cooker, then cut the potatoes into small pieces as they can be cooked faster and can be tenderized quickly.
  •  In this recipe, I have not added any water as the palak and onion release their own water and the gravy can be cooked in that water.
