Saag Aloo – Vegan Dinner Party

This┬áhas been one of my favourites from takeaways for a number of years, even in pre-vegan days. Potatoes and spinach, it’s just a tasty combination. I had bought already made saag aloo but had never tried to make it myself and I was surprised at how fast and easy it was.

Saag Aloo Recipe


  • 2 tbsp Sunflower Oil
  • 1 White Onion
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh Ginger
  • 500g Potato cut into 2cm chunks
  • 1 Big Red Chilli
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 250g Spinach


Heat oil, sautee onion, garlic and ginger. Stir in the potatoes, chilli, spices, 1/2 tsp of salt and continue cooking and stirring for 5 minutes. Add a little water and cook for 10 minutes.

Check potatoes are ready with a knife, add spinach at the last minute and mix.

  1. We added the chickpeas and half a head of cauliflower to get that extra veg in. Not strictly a sag aloo but a good base for any veg curry.
