A non fat desi style chicken cooked in spinach? Is it possible? Ofcourse!! Why ever not? It just takes a bit of thinking on how to create something without any oil !!
My vegetarian followers can substitute the chicken for vegetables.
Spinach is extremely good for health and many people dont like to eat it. This way the taste is camouflaged by adding dried or fresh fenugreek leaves and fresh coriander.
Do try this out if you are on a calorie controlled diet and you will be amazed.
