With chopped spinach in the freezer and potatoes in the pantry, it’s easy to prepare a simplified version of the classic Indian dish known as saag aloo (“greens potatoes,” literally translated). We season ours with a simple combination of spices—turmeric for its golden hue and cumin for earthy warmth. Before using the frozen spinach, thaw it and drain in a colander; if it’s still very wet, pat it dry with paper towels. Basmati rice or warm flatbreads make delicious accompaniments.
