3 cups chopped spinach
2 green chilies
2 large potatoes, peeled, boiled and cut in bite-sized pieces
4 tbsp. ghee
1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
1-inch piece ginger
2 large onions, chopped fine
1 tomato, diced fine
1/2 tsp. garam masala
1 tsp. cinnamon-clove powder
1 tsp. red chili powder
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. wheat or other flour
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 pinches asafetida powder
1/2 tbsp. butter
salt to taste


  1. Put the washed spinach in a pan with very little water (just a sprinkle) and a pinch of salt.
  2. Cover, bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Remove spinach and cool quickly by running under cool water.
  3. Transfer spinach to a blender, add green chilies and run for a minute. Spinach and chili mixture should be coarse – be sure not to over blend it. Set aside.
  4. In a large skillet fry the potatoes in ghee until light brown. Transfer potatoes to paper towel and set aside.
  5. Add the cumin seeds, ginger and onions to the skillet and fry until onions are tender (about 5 minutes).
  6. Add the tomato and fry for an additional two minutes.
  7. Add all the dry masalas (spice mixes) and fry until ghee separates.
  8. Add spinach and potatoes. When mixture begins to boil sprinkle the flour and stir well. Boil for 2-3 minutes, and then add lemon juice.
  9. Just before serving heat butter in a tiny saucepan and add the asafetida powder. Pour over the vegetable and mix.
  10. Serve hot.
