Spinach is a wonderful accompaniment to a traditional Pakistani curry. DESIblitz presents a tantalising spinach and chicken curry to try.
This recipe is a variation on the classic Pakistani Karahi recipe
Spinach is a bit of a super food.
Flavourful, healthy and versatile, it makes a great addition to any savoury dish.
Spinach is great in salads, but because it cooks in next to no time, it’s also perfect for quick meals.
If you’re in a hurry and need something healthy that will fill you up, then try this Pakistani inspired spinach and chicken curry recipe, courtesy of DESIblitz.
Spinach’s origins are thought to lie in ancient Persia, although the plant can be found all across central and western Asia.
Well known for being a good source of iron and vitamin K (for bones and preventing heart disease), Spinach is also rich in B vitamins, calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Put simply, having some spinach in your diet will stop you getting sick, strengthen your bones and help prevent you from dying unexpectedly.
This particular recipe is a variation on the classic Pakistani Karahi recipe, swapping the tomatoes out for the spinach. Although fresh spinach is always welcome, this dish can also be made using the canned variety.
A spoonful of natural yogurt is also a welcome addition if you want to make a sauce with a creamier consistency.
This recipe is perfect for weekday nights, when you are in a rush but still want to eat well. Enjoy!
