Full of vitamins, full of iron, found almost everywhere, and wait for it - low in calories -  kAchiiiinG - spinach is a super food, and so this is an excellent dish to try. Its a little twist on an indian dish I tried before. My simplified and less tongue burning version. 

So what you need for this:

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Fresh ginger about 1 cm chunk,  finely chopped
  • 1 green or yellow capsicum, diced
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 2/3 hot chilis
  • 1 pack spinach - I get this from the frozen isle
  • 1 pack baby potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons of natural yoghurt

  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin 
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric 
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder 
  • pepper and salt to taste

Heat a pot with the oil, then fry the chopped onion, garlic and ginger. Add the capsicum, tomato and hot chilli's, and mix well. Throw in 1 pack of spinach and mix well. Now add the baby potatoes. Mix altogether. If you find it is too thick, stir in half a cup of water.  Finish off with 3 tablespoons of natural yoghurt. 

I really enjoy this dish with plain white rice, and some tandoori chicken. 


  1. It looks similar to a dish we have in Nigeria, it is called efo and made with spinach as well.

  2. ya, full of iron, and full of flavours.. Pop-Eye would love it :)
