Palak Chicken

As the name says this has Chicken and spinach. I just gave it a try though I was wavery about the outcome because of adding spinach. But as you may know it came well and thats the reason I'm posting it here. The spinach gives an added flavor to chicken. I made it little dry, but this can be served as a gravy by taking off a little earlier.


Chicken - 250 gms
Palak/spinach - 2 cups chopped
Onion - 1 chopped
small Tomato - 1 chopped
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Red chilly powder - 1 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
Clove - 2
Cinnamon sticks - 1
Oil - 2tsp


Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan and add the whole garam masala

To this add ginger garlic paste, onions and tomatoes one by one after sauting each for a while

Now add chopped spinach, chilly powder and coriander powder and let it cook for 2 mins

Add Chicken to this and saute well. Add salt and some water and keep covered on medium heat. Let this cook for 10-15 mins. Keep stirring it every 2 mins to avoid burning

After chicken is cooked and turns tender turn the flame to high and fry well to remove any excess water (you may even have it with gravy than dry)

Serve hot with rice/roti when done
