Inspired by India, this all-time favourite vegetarian dish is loaded with authentic flavours and comfort food in a bowl.

650g potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

½ onion, thinly sliced

50ml water

½ vegetable stock cube, crumbled

1 tbsp oil

½ tsp cumin

½ tsp ground coriander

½ tsp garam masala

½ tsp hot chilli powder

Black pepper

250g fresh spinach, roughly chopped

Add the potatoes to the slow cooker along with the sliced onion, water, crumbled stock cube, oil, spices, and plenty of black pepper.

Top with a couple of big handfuls of fresh spinach.

Once the spinach has wilted you can add more.

Cook on high for 3 hours.

Stir every hour or so and scrape down the sides.

The exact cooking time will depend on exactly how big you cut your potato chunks. 

When the potatoes are tender, this dish can be served.
