As I did with the spiced green bean niscoise this dish was created by inspiration of using the last of a few ingredients around the kitchen. These new potatoes were the last remaining from the day before and with similar ingredients to the green beans I added some of the natural yoghurt left over from the mint raita. This was a compromise as my wife absolutely and on every occasion we devour an Indian take-away orders sag-aloo.
I never had any spinach on this occasion but she was as pleased with this side dish as was I. quite surprised at the flavours coming through I was most impressed with the tang that the lemon added. It really brought together the earthiness of the potatoes, sweetness of the peas and the heat from the spices. A creation that I will definitely be making again, or more so, being told too.
