The Layered Potato and Spinach Baked Dish is a luscious treat of potatoes and spinach baked with a creamy and cheesy topping. A mix-in of coriander and green chillies gives the potato layer a peppy flavour, while the team work of fenugreek, onions and cumin gives the spinach layer a fabulous taste.

A dash of lemon added to both layers gives them a zesty touch. You can use white sauce or fresh cream to top the arrangement depending on what you have on hand, and then garnish it with grated cheese before baking. The outcome is a totally mind-blowing baked dish that everybody will love.

Team up this baked dish with a loaf of bread and a bowl of your favourite soup for a satiating meal. Tastes equally good with Rotis or Mushrooms Stuffed with Paneer .
