If you want to make a gravy version then you can check this recipe of Aloo palak curry.

In this palak ki bhaji recipe, the addition of coconut gives a nice taste. In place of fresh grated coconut you can use desiccated coconut to make this palak dish. If you don’t have coconut then skip adding it and the recipe will still taste good.

Roti sabzi lunch is one of the staple dishes at home. So far I have posted many sabzi recipes that can be had with chapatis or rotis. Few such sabzi recipes on blog are:

The best part of sabzis or these dry vegetable preparations is that they get done quickly. They can also be packed as tiffin box.

Usually, when making recipe with green leafy vegetables for tiffin box, it is always better to pluck the leaves and keep them in the fridge. Then in the morning, just rinse and chop the leaves. This helps when making tiffin recipes with greens like amaranth, methi (fenugreek leaves), spinach etc.

Serve this dry aloo palak sabzi as a side dish with chapatis or pooris. You can also serve this palak bhaji with dal-rice or with any Indian meal.

  1. Loved the recipe.. different from the way others cook it, so different taste and different texture. Your recipes are always very dependable and authentic, well researched..I always check out your version as a final reference whenever try anything new or even old, for that matter. Especially love your Kashmiri recipes though I’m a vegetarian and therefore my range is limited.Thank you Dassana.
