Spinach (Palak ) Chicken Curry

To be honest, we eat more fresh spinach, in salads and very rarely when I cook it - I was not used to this taste of boiled spinach and it was a bit difficult to go to us. It is one of the best combinations - tasty, healthy and you will surely enjoy your family with it.

Ever since I discovered this Indian spinach chicken curry, I have repeated it about 3 times and every time there is nothing left on the plates. Now the frozen spinach reserves are mandatory, it is more convenient to use, especially in winter.

Palak Murgh (as it is called in Indian) is a very popular food in Indian restaurants, even this recipe is from an Indian chef's book, little adapted to European tastes.

So, I forgot - the best serving is of course with basmati rice, but you can also eat it as such, or with potatoes / pasta / cuouscous, etc.

Step 7

Then put the frozen spinach cubes - it is often recommended to defrost it and pass it well (to be like a sauce), I don't pass it anymore, I put it so directly.

If you have fresh spinach - wash it, scald it and pass it well - then add it to the food.
