It is certainly a re-creation, I twerked it a bit and made slight changes as my family loves gravy and added spices in it aswell. This recipe is from the famous KCH group on Facebook. Im so glad im part of it though i dont participateΒ much but i do try recipes from there and enjoy them πŸ™‚Β

This recipe went into my recipe book instantly πŸ˜€ specially i make the kababs and freeze them its a time saver πŸ˜‰

Hope you all enjoyed reading this and will try it out. Waiting for your feedback.

Until next time my lovelies.

Hello my beauties !! how are you all ?

Lets energize ourselves with a great new launch, ‘ The occasional guest blog writing’. This is our first ever guest blog post, which i personally found very informative and i am sure everyone else would too:). So, cutting the suspense, I would like humbly welcome and thank our first guest writer Shigufta Khan from The Reluctant Cook and her delicious recipe to our blog.

Chicken & Spinach Curry (Palak Chicken)

palak chicken

This is aΒ recipe I have borrowed from aΒ friendΒ who is a very good cook, Palak chicken is a very popular recipe served in nearly every AsianΒ restaurantΒ and takeaway. There are many versions of the recipe however I have found this one the quickest to make and its absolutelyΒ delicious.

Ingredients: 1/2 Kilo boneless Chicken pieces (breast or thigh)Β  Spinach 1/2 Kilo (fresh or tinned) FreshΒ coriander ( 1/2 bunch) 3 green chillies ( more if you want extra hot) Ginger & Garlic paste 1 tsp each Red chilli 1/2 tsp Salt (to taste) TurmericΒ powder Β 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds 1tsp Oil Method:

  • Blend the spinach, coriander, green chillies and all the spices excluding the cumin seeds in a food processor.
  • In hot oil add the cumin seeds when they start to sizzle add the washed chicken pieces. Fry for 10 mins then add the spinach and spices that have been blended. cover and cook on a low heat. The dish is cooked when the oilΒ separatesΒ from the spinach.Β 
  • Spinach tends to soak oil up so a little extra oil may need to be added whilst cooking to enhance the color of the dish. If you don’t wish to add extra oil that’s fine it will still taste delicious.Β 
  • Palak Chicken can be eaten with naan bread or chappatti.

Hope you enjoy making this dish girls πŸ™‚ i certainly love spinach and will try this out. All this food talking is making me hungry πŸ˜› Leave a comment and let me know how you guys are finding this new Guest Blogging category. Hope to catch you soon with a new guest πŸ™‚
