Aloo palak( dry spinach curry with potatoes)

It is one of my favorite dish. It is such a dish in which you can add or skip some ingredients according to your taste. Like I made a no onion, no garlic dish but you can add onion and garlic, even you can add prawns into it.

It just takes less than 30 minutes to make.

We all know spinach is a good source of vitamin C,Vitamin K, folic acid, iron and calcium but many kids say a no no and loose their appetite when they see spinach on their plate but I’ll guarantee you that once they taste this dish they will ask you to make it almost every day……. so it will be a win win situation for both mommy and kid.
