Quick cooking : Palak Chicken

Lying down next to my 6yr old son who isn't well from the past one week and waiting for the time to pass so that I can give him the next dose of medicine, I am exhausted but sleepless, tired yet want to keep the mind busy and yet not in a frame of mind of any real work on the laptop and that is when I realised that I had promised you guys this quick "Palak Chicken" recipe that is a regular at home.

Interestingly I learnt from my househelp years ago when I had just started to cook and it has stayed with me since then.

With the goodness and yumminess of palak and protein of chicken, this recipe is a keeper. The other thing I like about this recipe is that it goes with just about everything - roti's, rice and even dosa-idly.

So here is the yumminess for you.

    1. Wash, chop and purée the spinach. Make sure you wash it well since you don't want even a bit of dirt left in them.
    2. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and when it begins to heat, add jeera. After it browns a bit add all the whole spices and fry for another minute or so.
    3. Add onions and fry till they brown.
    4. Add tomatoes and fry till they leave oil. Now add all the dry ground masalas and fry for another minute.
    5. Add the palak purée and let it boil for about 4-5 minutes.
    6. Add chicken and a little water and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.
    7. Serve hot with paranthas, rice or dosa. The child loves to eat this with a spoonful of warm ghee.
