I used canola oil (GMO free) in this recipe, but you can use whichever oil you like, and you may even use butter for a more rich and delicious flavor. Or you can use olive oil or coconut oil or any oil of your choice.
Make sure to use the other ingredients just as they are suggested for the best results! In this easy spinach potato curry we do not use many spices, yet it is very creamy and delicious.
We do not use much water to cook the potato pieces, as the potato pieces will almost get cooked with the juices from tomato and spinach itself and it will make the gravy more yummy and flavorful along with the addition of fresh heavy cream.
We use one teaspoon of sugar to compensate the slight bitter taste from the three cups of spinach we use, and so using sugar in this recipe is very necessary.
