palak aloo recipealoo palak recipe | palak aloo recipe | aloo palak gravy recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. traditionally aloo palak recipe hails from the rich and colourful punjabi cuisine and aloo palak gravy is one of the popular punjabi delicacy. typically this spinach based curry is often served as side dish curry for roti, chapathi or naan. however it also tastes good with hot steamed rice and jeera rice or jeera pulao.

commonly the spinach based curries are prepared by blanching the spinach leaves which is later blended to form spinach puree. however in this recipe i have sautéed spinach and onion first, later i have blended to smooth paste as curry base. the rationale behind this step is to preserve all the nutrients of spinach leaves as compared to blanching or boiling the palak leaves. while blanching the spinach leaves looses its nutrients to the boiled water and just yields plain spinach puree. having said that, blanching is an popular technique that many chefs follow to keep spinach leaves crisp and tender. also boiling palak leaves briefly and chilling them, it would retain the both flavour and colour in aloo palak gravy recipe.

aloo palak recipefurthermore some easy and important tips and recommendations for a perfect aloo palak recipe. firstly, i highly recommend to use cold water while blending the onion and palak mixture. cold water helps to preserve and enhance the colour of palak leaves even after blending. secondly i have used baby potatoes in this recipe, however it is not mandatory. you can also use normal large potatoes, but make sure to dice them to comparatively smaller cubes. lastly, i have not added fresh cream or malai cream at the final step, but it can be added to make it more creamy.
