Palak chicken

Palak chicken dry recipe

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. 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.
