    A wonderful way to use spinach, cooked with the chicken and flavoured with chillies and spices. My daughter eats this so often she has muscles like Popeye--it's good.

      Another excellent chicken curry recipe of yours. I did make several changes though. I increased the ground coriander to 1 Table, increased the chili powder to 1 tsp. and did not add the 1/2 tsp. fennel seeds as I don't like a very strong fennel flavor. I deboned the chicken after the curry had cooled down and then added sour cream at the end, since I didn't have yogurt. I think that this curry is also very good without the dairy and I might eliminate it next time.

      Wonderful. I used 4 chicken breasts cut into big chunks, so didn't need anything like as much water as recipe said, just enough to make paste, and a smidge more once chicken was in. Spinach is watery anyway, so I didn't add any more at all, or cook as long as stated. I too increased ground coriander to 1 tablespoon, and was a bit sparing with the fennel. Really tasty !

      This is a great Curry. We use Ghee instead of oil and whole spices, lightly toasted then ground to give it a more authentic flavor. Chicken stock can replace the water if you have any and fresh Spinach also makes a difference. Anyway you like, it's still a great Curry!
