Potato, Spinach and Squash fry

Potato, Spinach and Squash fry

There is nothing as delicious as a nice bowl of veggies. Squash and Potato are my daughter's fav veg, and I had a bag of spinach sitting in the fridge waiting to be used in some form as I added it to the dish as the last ingredient. I served it with some jeera rice and a curry over the weekend but these will go great with rotis as well. As you will see below, this is a quick and easy recipe, so it's a perfect week night dish that can be made once you are home from work!

    Next add the ginger and garlic pastes and the tomatoes. After a couple of minutes, add the spice powders, I did not add in chile powder, but if you do, add a 1/4 or 1/2 worth.

    Once the tomatoes get all mushy, add the potatoes and squash and season with salt. Cook this on medium low heat with a lid on the pot. Add a couple of tablespoons of water if needed.

    When the veg has cooked through, I added the spinach and gave it all a good mix. The spinach will wilt within a few minutes.

  5. Edit

    Transfer to a serving bowl. This goes great with rotis or a side dish.
