Aloo Palak Gravy Recipe ~ Potatoes in Spinach Sauce

Aloo Palak is a simple North Indian curry prepared with spinach and potatoes. This is one of the most delicious ways of cooking potatoes. The spinach gravy is very popular in Indian cooking. I have already posted some spinach based gravy recipes like corn palak, palak mangodi and rajma palak. This curry tastes well with roti or pulao.
