This was the first time that I did not cook fish curry for lunch but preferred making chicken curry. Change is always good right? BTW today is Mother’s Day. I made this dish for myself to celebrate Mother’s Day 🙂 After all we deserve the best right 😉
After many days I cooked chicken at home. Yes, it was Chicken Saagwala or Palak Chicken. Chicken marinated in a paste of coriander leaves, garlic, ginger, green chilies, kasoori methi, lemon, yogurt and simmered in a mildly spiced spinach curry. Garnish this with fresh cream and have a great meal.
Palak chicken was a family favorite sometime back at my Mom’s place. But that time I was studying and was really never interested in cooking food. Only eating delicious food cooked by others and studying full-time was my motive then. I really don’t understand how this cooking became a passion now. I just love to try different types of dishes.
My hubby loved this chicken saagwala and said that it tasted better then coriander chicken which I usually prepare. Apart from being healthy, it is yummy and makes you want even more. I made this dish for lunch and served with jeera rice. Later we had the left overs for dinner with phulkas(breads).
Hubby showered me with lots and lots of compliments.
