Indian Potato Stir Fry? Something hot from the pan in this weather? Yes absolutely I would say. Especially in hot temperatures I like to eat very warm or lukewarm and preferably really great spiced. Of course, I don’t mind if it goes fast either, and it does with this dish. Put the pan on, add the ingredients, put the lid on and let it simmer. Just today at noon I treated myself to a serving and I think I’ll eat a piece of my new chocolate tart recipe later, too. Somebody has to eat all that, right? I definitely hope that with this recipe I can give you a great new inspiration for a quick, easy and incredibly delicious dish.

Fast, faster fastest, that’s what this dish is. Heat the oil in the pan and heat the spices in it. Fat is supposed to be a flavor carrier, as we all know, so I always use a little bit of it to really bring the spices to life. Mustard seeds, turmeric, paprika, cumin, garlic granules or fresh garlic and mix once really nice in the hot oil. Add to this potatoes, peeled and cut into small pieces.
TIP: I use waxy, or predominantly waxy potatoes in this dish. These varieties still have a great bite even after cooking time and don’t get mushy as quickly. I also pay attention to organic quality with potatoes, as with all other foods. Meanwhile, you can get them almost in every (even conventional) discount store.
Add to this diced tomatoes and spinach. For spinach , you can use fresh or frozen. I use frozen spinach leaves in this recipe and add them right at the beginning. If you use fresh spinach, add it at the end of the cooking time. All that’s missing is a hefty pinch of salt and water. Put the lid on and cook for 15.
TIP: Eine fine touch you also get if you replace part of the water with coconut milk.
Spinach keep oxalic acid low?
Let’s talk about spinach for a minute. On the net and in the social media you currently read a lot about spinach and oxalic acid. A very famous celebrity has even given up his vegan lifestyle because he got kidney stones. Afterwards, it came out that he really did put large amounts of spinach in his smoothie every day. Importantly, the acid can only become a problem if you consume really large amounts of it or have a genetic predisposition to forming kidney stones. So how can you reduce the likelihood of ingesting too much oxalic acid?
The key to success is variety. If you really do eat spinach every day, try using kale, lamb’s lettuce or other green leafy vegetables. Sprouting or fermentation also reduces the oxalic acid content.
Generally speaking, spinach is very healthy and consists of 91 percent water. Besides, in the green leafy vegetables you can find vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K1, iron, calcium and folic acid. The latter is especially important for women who want to become pregnant, are pregnant and also breastfeeding.
