They are also the thing that makes my Indian habit so synful! That’s why I needed to make some syn free starters and side dishes. Here’s my syn free saag aloo

Skinny Saag Aloo
– 4 waxy potatoes peeled and cubed
– a bunch of fresh spinach
– onions finely sliced
– a red chilli sliced into thin rings ( seeds in or out your choice)
– a thumb of ginger
– 2 cloves garlic
– mustard seeds, black onion seeds, cumin, turmeric
Steam the potatoes, when they are almost cooked add the spinach and wilt.
Meanwhile, slowly cook your onions, once soft but not brown add the garlic, ginger and chilli.
Add the potatoes and spinach along with the spices and allow them to cook together for a few minutes for the flavours to merge.
Serve and enjoy.
* Although I make every effort to correctly work out syns values, please be aware that syn values may vary depending where you buy certain items and that being human I do make mistakes. If using my recipes please double check the syn value for yourself, I would hate a mistake to sabotage anyone’s weight loss
