  • Cuisine: Indian
  • Diet: Vegan


  • 5 cups greens ( beets watercress spinach )
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1teaspoon crushed dried chillies or whole dried chillies (use desired limit)
  • 1onion sliced fine
  • 1 cup water
  • salt
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  • Wash and prepare the herbs.
  • Heat a pan on medium heat.
  • Add the oil.
  • Add the onions. Fry until soft.
  • Add the garlic.
  • Add chillie flakes. (I prefer chillie flakes instead of whole chillie. This allows for even ‘heat’ distribution rather than unexpectedly biting into a whole chillie.) Fry with the onions and garlic for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add cubed potatoes.
  • Add the water.
  • Stir then cover and allow to cook for 12-15 minutes or until the potatoes are semi cooked.
  • Add the greens Do not mix.
  • Place the lid over the pot leaving a small gap or leave open.
  • Allow to cook for 10 minutes or until the water has evaporated.
  • Once dry remove from stove.
  • Serve with rice or phutu.


This all-veg dish was served alongside potato curry, green bean curry & chana curry & roti.
