Aloo Palak - Palak potato - Potato spinach - Potato in spinach sauce - simple side dish for rice / roti / naan

I love Palak. It makes it easier to make good and healthy side dish. Most of the time I do Palak Paneer. Once in a while I do variation to it. Potato is not something that my kids look forward to have. So I always find ways to sneak it in something they like. I had this Palak Potatoes when I visited my friend. I kind of like it. So I have decided to try. It came out pretty good. And of course no complain from my kids may be because potatoes are soaked in spinach gravy..
Ingredients:
Palak - 2 cups (when cut into 1/2 inch pieces)
Baby potoato - 15 
Oil - 2 teaspoon
Onion - 1 (sliced finely)
Garlic - 3 pods (finely chopped)
Tomatoes - 2 (chopped finely)
Green Chillies - 2 
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon
coriander powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Red chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Ginger - 1 inch (slice finely)
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 teaspoon

Method:
Cook the Potatoes. Peel the skin and keep it aside. Cook the palak with little water.  Switch it off and let it cool down. When cool down grind cooked palak to smooth paste using mixie or blender or food processor.
Heat the kada and add 1 teaspoon oil. Add garlic and ginger and fry till garlic is brown in color.Add onion, green chillies and fry till transparent. Add tomatoes and fry till it is mushy. Switch it off. Let it cool down. Grind to smooth paste. ( I have grinded in the same blender in which I made spinach puree so the color is green)
Heat the kada again. Add rest of the oil. Add cumin seeds. Let it crackle. Add turmeric powder, Garam masala, coriander powder and chilli powder. Add onion tomato paste. Fry for 2-4 mins.  Add spinach paste. Add enough water so that you get desired consistency. Let it boil. Add Cooked Potatoes and cook for another 7-10 mins. 
Serve hot with Roti or rice or naan or kulcha or pulka or paratha
