Aloo palak is one of my favourite curries and it’s so universally loved that I thought I would share my recipe for it. Saag aloo is a classic on the British Indian restaurant menu and is much loved by Brits all over. Definitely a comfort food at its finest!
Plus, it’s so easy to prepare with basic ingredients that you’re pretty much guaranteed to have. Spinach in the form of curries is a regular occurrence in our household as everyone eats it whether I make it with chicken or lamb or on its own.
So, I use spinach leaves, that’s why I have called it aloo palak as opposed to aloo saag. Palak refers to spinach leaves whereas the latter refers to any green leafy vegetable which includes spinach leaves, as well as fenugreek leaves and mustard leaves. It’s up to personal preference which you would choose to use.
My family likes spinach, so I usually use spinach. You could even use a mix of spinach and mustard leaves if you like!
