Sea Beet Saag Alloo

You can use a vast range of wild greens instead of spinach in Saag Aloo, however my favourite by far is Sea Beet Saag Aloo – the beet bring a nice salty spinach flavour to the dish and lightens up the spicy potatoes perfectly. Enjoy as a side dish to any great curry or add some diced chicken or lamb to use this as a main in its own right.

Ingredients:

500g chopped potatoes – 2cm cubes – par boiled for 10mins

250g Sea Beet, roughly chopped

1tbsp cumin seeds

1 tsp turmeric powder

1tsp hogweed seeds ground

¼ tsp fine chilli flakes

1tsp coconut oil

Method:

In a wide frying pan heat the coconut oil to a high temperature and add the cumin seeds for 30 seconds until their fragrant aroma is released.

Chuck in the par boiled potatoes and further spices and fry for 5-10 minutes until the potatoes are starting to crisp nicely

Throw in the Sea beet stir for 30 seconds and turn of the heat

Serve straight away and enjoy.
