Mise en place

  • Blanch the spinach in boiling water for 4 minutes.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a high-sided saucepan, add the mustard seeds and fry for 2 minutes until they start to pop.
  2. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the potatoes, chilli powder and slices, pour in the water and cook for about 8 minutes.
  4. Add the spinach, cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the potatoes are to your liking.

Serving suggestions

Serve hot.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
