spinach sauce

2019-10-18 a.o.

Creamed spinach can be used as a sauce. It can be prepared as a roux-based sauce, similar to Cauliflower Sauce (béchamel) or Fennel Sauce (velouté.) In this case, some oil was added, but no flour was used to thicken the sauce, although the potatoes probably provided some starch to that purpose..

Aloo Palak is a popular Indian dish, potatoes with spinach and various local spices.
