Palak aur gobhi ki sabzi

Even though I love to cook and spend time in the kitchen, I hate the task of thinking about what to cook. To me there is nothing more irritating than deciding on the menu for lunch and dinner. There are times when I call up S at his office for help. But then, much to my irritation, the answer I always get is, "cook anything you want". As If he would eat anything I cook. Yesterday was one of those days where I was in a fix. I checked the refrigerator twice. There was this bunch of spinach and then there was this cauliflower. I decided to put these two together in the form of this sabzi. The curry was not a disappointment at all. The only comment from S was, "it would have tasted better if you would have added potato as well". Now  coming from S, that's a compliment. So here goes the recipe
