How to make Palak chicken

This is another way to cook up that healthy spinach in your pantry into a lip smacking dish to be served with roti, parathas or rice. This is a kind of fusion recipe. I am quite inspired with the Rajasthani seasonings  added by chef Bhasin in his delicious chicken Kadhi  recipe and cooked my spinach chicken with a bit of  Rajasthani twist. The whole spices seasonings of coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds and red chilies add quite an unique flavor to this otherwise popular North Indian dish .Actually I tried a number of versions of this dish and all came out with magical flavors.
