About palak chicken

Chicken and spinach curry - Saag Murgh or Palak Murgh is a classic Indo-Pakistani dish prepared with pureed fresh spinach cooked in spices and creamy yoghurt (or tomato soup). Spinach inherently releases a lot of moisture to coat the cooked chicken pieces. Yoghurt is used to marinate the pieces. One can prepare the recipe to get a thinner or thicker consistency as per their personal choices.

It is prepared with regional variations at the local eateries in the Indian subcontinent and offered as palak murgh, palak chicken, saag murgh, or saag chicken. In regional cuisine, sometimes, chicken is replaced with goat or lamb pieces but the cooking time doubles if meat pieces are added. Some local eateries prepare extra creamy palak chicken made with cashew cream or yoghurt, giving the recipe a creamy, velvety texture.
