Heyy...hope you all had a great weekend. I really enjoyed mine. We had friends over for dinner on Saturday, it was a potluck I was hosting and we had some awesome food. Then on Sunday we had arranged a surprise baby shower party for a friend at Round Table, played some games and had great fun.
Cooking took a back seat except for my contribution to the potluck, which was the Chicken fry I had posted a while back. The rest of the meals we just managed with some leftover's from last week which also included Palak Chicken that I had made on Thursday. I love to add spinach to gravies in which they won't taste so obvious and I love the green color it gives any dish. This is one such dish I like to make often and it's really yumm.
Palak Chicken Ingredients:
150 gms spinach
4 green chillies
2 lbs chicken
1 big onion
1 tbs ginger garlic paste
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala
1/2tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/4tsp turmeric powder
2 lbs chicken
salt to taste
8-10 curry leaves
Blanch the spinach and grind to a smooth paste along with the green chillies.
Heat oil in a pan and fry the onion till golden. Fry the ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute.
Add the tomatoes and cook till the oil separates. Add the masala powders and fry for a minute.
Add the chicken and mix well. Add the salt, cover and cook for about 5 mins. Add the ground spinach and curry leaves and mix well. Add some water if necessary.
Cover and cook on low heat till the chicken is done.
Check the seasonings and remove from heat. Serve hot with naan or chappatis.
