Palak Aaloo [Indian Style Spinach-Potato Stir fry]

I sometimes feel I am a distant cousin of Popeye the Sailor! I start craving for spinach every now and then like him to get energy boosts.Its so very strange:)

Spinach was never my favourite vegetable as a child but over the years I have really developed an appetite for it.My mom always says that as you grow old your taste buds mature too so always keep tasting!Probably this is one of the reasons that now I enjoy this green leafy vegetable so much.Another reason could be the availability in ready -to- use forms in the american grocery stores. Just tear the pouch apart , chop and throw into the wok.I have not become lazy enough to start using the pre cut variety as yet :)
