Hi Dennis,
	Palac Aloo (potato and spinich recipe) is one of my favorites.  I
seem to remember it as being very oily.  However, I found the following
recipe at:  http://sunsite.auc.dk/recipes/english/cat78.html  "Morten's
Recipe Collection,"  and it is oil free.  He has plenty of other Indian
recipes there as well!

>Palak Aloo (Chunks of Potato Cooked with Fresh Spinach)
>14 oz. fresh or frozen spinach
>1/2 lb. potatoes
>1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
>1/2 tsp cumin seeds
>scant 1/3 cup chopped tomato
>1/4 tsp tumeric
>1/2 tsp chili powder
>optional-if you can find fenugreek leaves (menthi) replace 2 0z.
>of spinach with it, removing hard stems.
>Weigh spinach weigh it after you remove the stems and chopped it. Wash
