Aloo Palak

Aloo Palak is one of my recent tries and I wonder why I havent tried this curry so far, though palak paneer is onto my todo list.This was just an accident I happened to try this as I had no paneer at home and glad I did. Its a healthy tasty combination that goes well with rotis or any mild pulaos or even ghee rice.
