Spinach is one of India's most popular green leafy vegetables and is used both in
simple side dishes and as the base of a more complex curry.
This dish is typical of the everyday food of Punjab, a North Indian province named
after the five rivers flowing through it. In the region there is a real love for
adding fresh, seasonal vegetables into their curries to create a hearty, one pot
The beauty of this Spiced Spinach Curry (apart from the flavour obviously!) is that
it takes on subtly different notes depending on which ingredient you add to it.
In my home we always made chicken or lamb into a spinach curry but it is just as
delicious with paneer or pulses. This dish is typically finished with a knob of
fresh, homemade butter or a little cream.
