Shit recipe , very dry
You’re rude! As an Indian (much of our cuisine is similar to Pakistani cuisine) I believe Miss. Aziz is a brilliant cook & her dishes are authentic. If you didn’t like the recipe it’s because you didn’t make it correctly or you’re accustomed to eating a bland Anglicised version at so-called Indian restaurants.
I totally agree sister. It’s like he didn’t cook it properly or his literally used to a ready made /restaurant versions. Whatever. He is real disrespectful. ✋
Seriously?! Must be cause your used to shop
ready made versions… 🤣
You’re very wrong! Or have bad taste buds. Maybe you didn’t cook it using the exact method.
I liked it. I think I may sauté the potatoes first next time and just add them at the end. I also might add a spice or two more, maybe cumin as it does just lack a little something. But overall a good recipe
Thank you for the suggestions. I’ll be sure to try them too!
Punjabi Sikh woman here. We eat this dish too! Sautéing the potatoes & adding cumin is not part of this dish!✋ Sautéing is a western concept. Cumin doesn’t work with spinach/potatoes! That’s like me saying I’m going to add curry power to Sunday roast potatoes/add an unsuitable herb in a steak & kidney pie. I would be changing these dishes entirely! So why do you think It’s ok to criticize a south Asian dish and try to change it? The cook knows what shes talking about and so do I!
Brilliant recipe thanks. I made this a few days ago. I served it with basmati rice, chilli and lime pickle, mini papads and kebab. I want to make your chicken curry next. 🙏
Very tasty sister. I serve this before dawn today. Sooo good. I’m loving your vids and am looking to make a beef keema with lots off aloo real soon. When you getting your own tv show sister? 🧕🏻
Hi. Made this tonight as this was the only recipe I found that actually looked like the saag aloo I know, and whilst I par boiled the potatoes and used frozen spinach I essentially followed the steps and it came out very close to what you might expect from a restaurant.
Thank you! I’m glad you liked it!
Can I freeze this recipe?
Most definitely, it will keep for a good month or two without spoiling it.
Thankyou for this lovely recipe, it went down very well!
This was my first time making Palak saag aloo and finding a recipe where the recipe picture looked exactly how mine turned out. The flavour, the smell, the look is everything I had hoped for. This recipe is so easy to follow and I was so thankful for the cooking times given as they were spot on and helped so much. Aziz, thank you so much for posting and I will be using your recipe forever as it was delicious. I admit That I added extra potatoes as I was cooking for 5 of us, I added a little extra water maybe about 5 more table spoons to help the extra potatoes cook if this helps anyone wanting to add more. Happy cooking!!
