PALAK CHICKEN( CHICKEN IN SPINACH) OIL FREE!!

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.
INGREDIENTS:
500 grams of boneless chicken breast
1 cup of non fat white natural yogurt
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste

1 teaspoon of Nitu Didi turmeric powder

200 grams of chopped spinach
2  tomatoes quartered
green chillies to taste, chopped
1/4 cup of green coriander leaves
2 tablespoons of kasuri methi (dreid fenugreek leaves) or … 1 bunch of fresh fenugreek leaves
1 small onion , quartered
5 cloves of garlic
1 small piece of ginger
METHOD:
Marinate the chicken in the yogurt, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder, salt for a few hours. Boil the spinach with all the ingredients lsited in the for the spinach category. Once its boiled  puree it.
Heat a wok and add the chicken and stir on high heat till it starts to cook. Add the spinach puree and cook it all till the chicken is cooked well and a thick sauce is left on the pan. Sprinkle with garam masala if you want and serve hot.
