Palak Chicken

Am I overdoing the spinach? It’s possible I’m overdoing the spinach. It’s ok though, today’s post marks the end of my current supply. I’m sure I’ll let you all know once I re-stock.

I found this on Simple Indian Recipes and followed it fairly precisely. It’s delicious. Soo soo delicious. I think spinach might be my new best friend in life.

These were my interpreted instructions:

  • Mix 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tbs garam masala, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp ground cumin, salt, 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste, and 3 tbs yoghurt.
  • Mix in the chicken breast (sorry I have no idea how much) and leave it in the fridge. It does look quite pretty.

Palak Chicken Marinade

  • Blend 2 tomatoes with all the spinach ends
  • Cook a chopped onion in 2 tbs ghee (I put 3 and it seemed a bit much) You can use butter or oil but I love the smell of ghee.

  • Add the tomato-spinach paste and keep cookin

  • Add the chicken and let that cook properly

Palak Chicken Pan

  • Mix in the spinach leaves with a dash of nutmeg

Did I mention how delicious this is?

Serves perfectly as the anticipatory meal to Day 2 of a Test Match. Now I just need to make dessert for if things go horribly wrong with Pakistan’s batting.

I try to be an optimist.
