Healthy and Delicious Chicken Curry with Spinach Leaves!


Yield: 5-6 Servings

Chicken (with bone)...1 kg

Spinach leaves (chopped)...5 cups

Mustard oil...2 tbsp

Sliced onions...1 medium size

Cumin seeds...1/2 tsp.

Cinnamon stick...2 inch piece

Bay leaf...1

Chopped garlic...2 tbsp.

Coriander powder...1 tsp.

Cumin powder...1/2 tsp.

Garam masala...2 tsp.

Kasuri methi (crushed)...1.5 tbsp.

Turmeric powder...1/2 tsp.

Kashmiri red chilli powder...2 tsp.

Tomato purée...from 2 medium sized tomatoes (1 cup)

Salt...to taste

  • To the chicken, add half a teaspoon of turmeric powder, half a teaspoon of cumin powder, 2 teaspoons of coriander powder, 1 teaspoon of garam masala powder and 1 teaspoon of salt

  • Give that a good mix

  • Add 2 tablespoons of mustard oil

  • Coat the chicken really well with the mustard oil. Mustard oil gives the chicken a very nice and intense test

  • Set that aside

  • Set a pan on medium heat and add approximately 3 tablespoons of oil

  • Add cumin seeds, cinnamon stick and the bay leaf

  • Once the cumin seeds start to splutter add the chopped onions and sprinkle some salt so the onions cook faster

  • Stir fry till the onions turn golden brown in color

  • This should take approximately four minutes

  • Then add the chopped garlic and keep stirring till the onions turn nice and dark.This should take another 3 minutes or so

  • Add the marinated chicken in

  • Stir fry the chicken until it turns nice and brown

  • Stir fry for around 10 minutes and make sure that the chicken is fried well

  • Then add the tomato puree and coriander powder

  • Add Kashmiri chilli powder and a cup of water

  • Give it a quick stir and place a lid on it

  • Let the chicken completely cook through This should take 8 to 10 minutes

  • Add the spinach leaves

  • Place the lid on on for 3 minutes so that the spinach leaves wilt

  • Once they have wilted it's much easier to mix them into the gravy

  • Mix well and let the gravy simmer and get thicker

  • Let the gravy simmer for around eight minutes

  • Add more salt if you need to

  • Add garam masala and add in the Kasuri methi leaves. Do so by crushing it nicely in between your palms.

  • You can squeeze some lime juice if you wish. I like it a little sour but that's totally optional
