  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/gas mark 6.

Place the roasting tray in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes, until cooked through. Set the pork aside for 10 minutes, loosely covered with a tent of foil, before carving. 
  3. Meanwhile, to make the sag aloo, steam or boil the potatoes for about 10 minutes, until cooked through. Drain well and set aside. 
  4. Heat the oil in a large pan set over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and fry for about 3 minutes. Stir in the chilli, turmeric, coriander seeds and cumin seeds and continue cooking and stirring for 2 minutes. Add the lime juice, cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes. Set aside until ready to serve. 
  5. To make the raita, combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Keep in the fridge until needed. 
  6. Before serving, warm the spiced onion mixture, then add the potatoes and spinach and let it wilt in the pan. Take off the heat and keep warm while you carve the pork. 
  7. Serve the pork immediately with the sag aloo and some raita on the side.
