Slow Cooker Saag Aloo

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 3 hours
Serves: 4


  • 650g potatoes
  • 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


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into chunks measuring about an inch. Add them 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 - however much you can easily fit in your slow cooker. I you can't fit all of the spinach in, go back and add the rest about an hour into the cooking time, once it had wilted down and created some space.
  2. Cook on medium (or high if you don't have a medium setting) for around 3 hours, until the potato is soft - stir every hour or so to scrape down the sides. The exact cooking time will depend on exactly how big you cut your potato chunks.
