3. Heavy cream 1/2 cup
4. Onion 1/3 cup (finely chopped)
5. Ginger 1 tsp (finely chopped)

1. Heat 2 tbs of olive oil in a pan, fry the cubed potatoes till half cooked, take out and keep them aside. Now add chopped onions to the oil & fry them till golden brown.
2. Add  finely chopped ginger, saute for couple of seconds and add chopped tomatoes.
3. Cook the chopped tomatoes nicely till the raw smell is gone, add some water if needed.
4. Now add salt to taste, turmeric powder, coriander powder, curry powder and red chili powder. Saute them all together for few seconds.
5. Now add the fried potatoes, green peas(optional) and spinach, cook for 5-6 minutes on medium heat. Cover occasionally. Spinach may release water, if not then sprinkle some water as needed.

7 Serve hot with steamed rice or chapati and naan.
