    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]How to make [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Saag Aloo[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Put the washed spinach in a lidded pan with 2 fl oz water, bring to the boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Drain well and set aside to cool.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Cut the peeled onions in half and thinly slice. Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan, add the onions and fry over a high heat until reddish brown - almost crisp.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Add the ginger and garlic and stir fry for 2 minutes.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Add the cardamom pods, cinnamon, coriander, cumin and cayenne powder and fry for a further minute.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Stir in the yoghurt well, and heat until bubbling, add the salt and stir in 2 fl oz water.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Cut the potatoes into smallish pieces (roughly 2" x 2" / 5 cm x 5 cm) and stir into the spice mixture. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Add a little more water if necessary during the cooking process to stop the pan drying out.[/FONT]

    • [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Chop the spinach finely, add to the potatoes and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]You can make [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Saag Aloo[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] in advance of the meal but it does not freeze well.[/FONT]
