Palak Vegetable Curry | Mixed Vegetables In Spinach Curry | Spinach Curry With Vegetables

Palak Vegetable Curry
I mostly pack rotis & Curry or sabzi for Lunchbox. At least three days in a week it will be rotis and a side for V's lunchbox. So i have to make different curry and sabzis every day, If you are my Instagram Follower then you might be knowing what I pack for my kids and V's lunchbox daily. Since I share their lunchbox pictures  and sometimes do share the recipes of sabzi and curry and Quick Rice Recipes too. If interested do follow on Instagram for more updates and recipe ideas. One of my kids' favorite spinach curry is Palak Paneer but I cannot make palak with paneer all the time. So sometimes it will be Tofu Palak or Aloo Palak for rotis. I also make Palak curry with mixed vegetables combo and this is my favorite spinach curry, this time took some pictures to share here. This is so simple recipe with great taste and a yummy side dish to go with Puris & Phulka.

Spinach Curry With Vegetables
Palak Vegetable Curry
Prep Time : 25 minutes | Cook Time : 10 minutes or less
Recipe Category : Side Dish
Serves 4

  1. Mixed Vegetables    2 cup(chopped carrot. beans, potato & Cauliflower florets)
  2. Spinach/Palak    1 bunch
  3. Ginger   1" piece
  4. Garlic  2 fat cloves
  5. Green Chilli   2 no.
  6. Sugar  a pinch
  7. Onion  1 medium(finely chopped)
  8. Tomato  1 small(finely chopped)
  9. Garlic   1/2 tsp (finely chopped)
  10. Green Peas  1/4 cup (fresh or frozen)
  11. Salt   to taste
  12. Oil   1/2 tbsp
  13. Cumin seeds    1/4-1/2 tsp
First wash spinach thoroughly in running water, then chop it roughly and keep ready.
In a wide vessel, add chopped spinach, garlic, ginger and green chilli, sugar and sprinkle some water(1/4 cup) and cook for 4-5 minutes.
Once it turned soft and tender turn off the stove and allow to cool for a while.
Meanwhile, chop onions, tomato and paneer and keep aside.
Then in a mixer jar add the cooked spinach-ginger-garlic and blend it to a smooth paste and keep aside.
Heat oil and butter in a kadai, add cumin seeds and finely chopped garlic and allow to splutter and fry well.
And then add finely chopped onions, sprinkle a pinch of salt and saute till it turns light golden brown.
Then add finely chopped tomato and saute till it turn soft and mushy.
Now add the ground spinach paste, little water(1/2 cup), frozen peas and enough salt and bring it to half boil(cook in medium heat without closing the kadai with lid).
Once it starts to boil, add the steamed cut vegetables and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
That's it...Delicious Palak Vegetable Curry ready.
Mixed Vegetables - I used 1 medium size carrot chopped, 20 green beans chopped, 1 medium potato peeled and diced, 1/4th of a medium sized cauliflower crown.
I used oil to temper but you can use Desi Ghee or Butter.
Adding sugar helps to retain the fresh green colour.
I did not add cream or half and half, but if you want can add 2-3 tbsp in the end.
With the same spinach gravy, instead of mixed vegetables you can also add cooked potato/aloo, roasted tofu, cooked channa/chickpeas.
