Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Chicken
  • 500 g Spinach Palak
  • 50 ml Oil
  • 2 Garlic
  • 2 Onions
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 Green Chillies
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1 tsp Crushed Chillies
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Dried Fenugreek Leaves


  • Heat the oil in the pan on medium heat until hot.
  • Finely chop the garlic cloves then add to the pan and sauté for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant.
  • Add the cumin seeds and crushed chillies then sauté for a further 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the finely diced onions and cook for 4-5 minutes until softened.
  • As the onions are cooking chop the tomatoes then add to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Finely chop the spinach up then add the pan and cook for 5-7 minutes until the water is released – spinach decreases in volume significantly so it may seem like a large amount, but it will become much less as the water is released.
  • Add the chilli powder, salt, coriander powder, and turmeric powder then cook the spices for 5 minutes
  • Add the chicken then cover and cook for 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Add the chopped green chillies and dried fenugreek seeds.
  • Serve with basmati rice and enjoy!
