“Saag” is a Punjabi term used for all leafy green preparations made with either spinach leaves, fenugreek leaves, mustard leaves or collard leaves. And saag wala chicken or palak chicken is one of them – an authentic Indian recipe and a real keeper.
It tastes so delicious that even picky eaters won’t be able to resist this dish. Isn’t this a healthy way to incorporate leafy greens in a kid’s meal, a win-win situation for all of us.
The secret ingredient in this recipe is cashews. A handful of them, when pureed and added to the simmering gravy makes a world of difference to the texture and taste of palak chicken. The gravy becomes wonderfully creamy and thick, just the way it’s supposed to be.
