Restaurant Style Aloo Palak (Potato Spinach) Curry using Slow Cooker

Today I am posting a very simple vegan curry for a busy week day dinner or lunch. Recipe for Aloo-Palak Curry does not require many ingredients and most of them are easily available in any pantry. This mildly spiced curry is simple combination of cubed potatoes and spinach. Making it in slow-cooker or crockpot makes is ever easier. It tastes great with Jeera Rice, Naan, Roti or Paratha.

  1. This recipe looks delicious and tasty.

  2. I don't have a slow cooker as I always felt that Indian cooking isn't suited to it but reading your recipe makes me realise how easy it would be to transfer the curry to a slow cooker once you have added the tadka. Thanks for sharing the recipe and linking it to my Veg event too.

    1. Hello Mina,

      Agree with you. It took me while to realize benefit of slow cooker for Indian cooking. Now that I have started using it, my slow cooker never goes back in the cabinet.

  3. Thanks for joining me for The Slow Cooker challenge, your Spinach and Potato Curry looks great.
