  • Summary

    Saag aloo is usually made with regular potatoes but we like our sweet potato version. The great thing about these little beauties is they are richer in nutrients – particularly vitamin C – than white potatoes and lower in starch. They count towards your five a day too, while regular potatoes don’t. We like to make our own spice mix for this but if you prefer you can use curry powder.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
    • 1 onion, thinly sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 20g fresh root ginger, grated
    • 1 tbsp spice mix (see below) or mildcurry powder
    • 2 sweet potatoes, diced
    • 1 tomato, diced
    • 300ml vegetable stock
    • 150–200g bag of baby spinach, picked over and thoroughly washed
    • squeeze of lemon juice
    • sea salt and black pepper
    • 1 tsp coriander seeds
    • 1 tsp cumin seeds
    • 1 tsp fennel seeds
    • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
    • a few green chillies, sliced
    • a few sprigs of coriander
