Palak / Spinach chicken curry / Green Chicken Curry
chicken 1/2 kg
palak 1/2 bunch
coriander leaves chopped 1/2 cup
green chilly 2
curd 1 tablespoon
turmeric powder 1/2 teaspoon
coriander powder 2 teaspoons
pepper powder 2 teaspoons or as desired
garam masala 1/2 tea spoon
onion 2
garlic paste 1 teaspoon
ginger paste 1 teaspoon

Boil water.Remove from fire. Place palak leaves in this and keep for two or three minutes till it is cooked.Drain and fill the vessel with cold water and wait for two minutes. (We do this just to retain the green color of the leaves.)
Take the leaves out and grind them into a fine paste.
Heat oil, saute chopped onion till golden brown. Add garlic ginger paste and saute for few seconds. Then add chicken, all the powders, slit green chillies,salt , coriander leaves and curd..Use 1/2 cup or more water for cooking. Cook until the chicken is done. Then add ground palak paste. Keep on a low flame, boil, remove from fire.After adding palak paste boiling too much may change the green color of the curry.

  7. Hey Seena is palak spinach? This curry looks sooooo good, I love the colour! As always I love your recipes they are so tasty and your recipes are very well written. Great post. :)

  8. Seena, what kind of green chiles are best in Indian dishes like this? My family likes some heat. Can I use the flame-roasted frozen NM Big Jims or Sandias? I always have those on hand.

    Thanks! I like your recipes though I have not tried one yet. They are very well stated.
