Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Heat a little oil in a frying pan, and cook and stir the cumin, asafoetida, garlic, green pepper and onion, until the onion is translucent, 2 or 3 minutes.
  2. Stir in the turmeric, curry powder, coriander and tomato. Add a small amount of water so that the spices do not burn. Let the tomato cook until it begins to break down, 2 or 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the spinach and potatoes. Season with salt, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
