palak 1/2 bunch

coriander powder 2 teaspoons
pepper powder 2 teaspoons or as desired

garlic paste 1 teaspoon
ginger paste 1 teaspoon
salt
oil



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.

  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.

  9. Hi Anon,
    Thanks for visiting..:)
    For Indian cooking better use fresh green chillies.May be NM fresh green chillies would be great, but don't know how hot they are compared to Indian chillies. Steamed and frozen chillies won't have that much freshness and taste.When you start cooking with fresh green chillies, for first time use half of the amount prescribed. Otherwise am not sure you can adjust with the spiciness.
    Thank you, keep visiting here.
    Enjoy Cooking! :)
