      This was super-tasty, and complemented the butter chicken I served this with perfectly. It's a bit of a bother to make, but the flavor can't be beat. I actually preferred it over the spinach dishes I've had at Indian & Pakistani restaurants. The only change I made was using 2 serrano peppers instead of the jalapeno, and the dish ended up having the perfect amount of heat. Thanks for sharing.
