A big thanks to Manju @ Mirch Masala  for introducing me to  "Full Circle Farm". I'm glad that I found this service. A box of fresh Vegetables and fruits on every wednesday morning at doorstep oh! no grocery shopping.. I'm we are loving it. This week delivery included fresh Spinach, Idaho potatoes and I can't think of any other recipe than "aloo palak" which is quick and simple to go with chapathis, pulkas or even with plain white rice.

1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
Whole masala( 2 Cloves, 3-4 Peppercorns,1" cinnamon, 1 small cardamom, 1 tsp cumin seeds)

Boil water and cook palak and green chilies until the leaves are soft and tender. Let it cool
In a heavy pan heat 3 tbsp oil add whole masalas and cuminseeds. when seeds starts splutters add chopped onions and saute for a min.
Once the onions are golden add ginger-garlic paste and saute.
Now add all the powders and mix well.Let the masala and onions combine well.

The service sounds like what we call a CSA here in the States. It seems to becoming popular, which is really great. And probably beats going to farmer's markets twice a week like I do in terms of convenience.
The spinach and potato dish sounds SO good!
