Saag Aloo is another one of those UK favourites which isn't really a dish you would find traditional Indian cuisine. That said, it's easy, healthy, and a great way to get some more spinach into your diet. By themselves, these two ingredients are a bit boring, but once you get the masala and spices in that's when you start to see how lovely and flavourful Saag Aloo really is.
I have different versions of this Saag Aloo recipe – one where I purée the spinach and another where I add paneer. Give it a go, it tastes great and probably much fresher than the dishes you're used to eating. With a quick cooking time, it’s convenient to rustle up in your own kitchen for a quick mid-week Indian food-fix.
An amazing side dish, works really well with a lamb main dish, but also lovely as a dish in its own right. If you fancy doing a lamb madras along with you Saag Aloo I have a convenient madras spice kit you could try.
