Authentic Recipe

Main Ingredients

Spinach

Chicken

Tomato

Ghee

Cream

Spices

Cumin Seeds

Step 1

Prepare the chicken and cut it into 1 1/2 inch pieces. If you like a smooth saag, then puree the onion and tomato.

Step 2

Boil water in a large pot. Add spinach leaves to it and let it boil for 2-3 minutes.

Step 3

Using a slotted spoon, remove the spinach leaves from the water and transfer them to an ice bath for a couple of minutes. Remove spinach from the ice bath, squeeze out extra liquid, and transfer to a blender. Blend to a coarse paste. It is good to have a little bit of texture to the pureed spinach.

Step 4

Heat a skillet on medium heat. Add the oil and ghee, and let them heat for 30 seconds. Add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle.

Step 5

Add the onion puree and saute for 6-7 minutes until they are golden in color. Add ginger and garlic and saute for another minute.

Step 6

Add the tomato puree and spices and saute for 2-3 minutes.

Step 7

Add the chicken, and saute for 5-6 minutes until the chicken changes color.

Step 8

Add the spinach mixture to the pan. Mix well, then cover with a lid and cook for about 8 minutes. Stir in between at least once. If needed, add water to adjust the consistency.

Step 9

Remove the lid and give the curry a stir. Add the garam masala and if using, cream to the curry. Cook for another couple of minutes.

 And it's ready!
