Clove of garlic, finely
  Chopped
Hot pepper (he uses whole
  Dried red pepper and crushes
  It)
1 dash Oil, Pam or saute liquid
1 teaspoon Huldi or tumeric
1 each Salt to taste
Bag of Fresh spinich
Potato, peeled and cubed

First WASH the spinich very well. Break off ugly parts of leaves and stems. Peel and cube the potato. Place both in a large saucepan and add very little water, about ¼ cup. Let cook on Med temp. until the potatoes are cooked, adding water when needed and then only a little at a time.

When the potatoes are done, heat another deepsided frying pan. Add oil, Pam or saute liquid. When the saute medium is hot add the garlic and onion. Fry until the onion is translucent. Add salt, hot pepper and huldi. Fry some more. The huldi should turn everything yellow.

Incidently, huldi is very good for your stomach, reduces gas when used in dal recipies.

Fry everything together for about a minute, don't let the onions turn brown, turn down the heat if needed.

Add the spinich to the onion mixture, stirring constantly but not hard.

Serve with cornmeal roti.
