Palak chicken recipe, a variety side dish using chicken and spinach leaves and tastes best with roti, rice or phulka…

A common term for spinach in India is “palak” and is filled with full of nutrients and vitamins which is a must inclusion in our regular diet.

palak chicken recipe

Palak is a very healthy vegetable and so is chicken and one is a green leafy vegetable with lots of iron in it and the other is a non veg which has lots of proteins in it.

Combination of both the main ingredients is a healthy package of iron and proteins which helps in improving iron and also helps in building our body with chicken.

Usually, non veg like meat is basically mixed with many vegetables like potato, any green leafy vegetable, or any vegetable but chicken is combined rarely with vegetables and does not taste good if combined.

If chicken is combined, then it can be used along with green leafy vegetables like gongura/sorrel leaves or spinach leaves/palak.

palak chicken curry

It is very very rarely combined with potato and also chicken is made in green color using pudina or kothmir.

This chicken curry made here is also green and is made using spinach leaves in chicken pieces.

Two ways to make palak chicken:

  1. Palak can be pureed separately by boiling the leaves in some salt water and added while making chicken curry.
  2. Palak leaves can be directly added into the chicken and this is a very quick and easy method of making palak chicken and tastes good too.

Chicken is made in thousands of varieties and the innovation never ends with chicken and it can be used to make various snacks, main course recipes, curry recipes etc…

I have already shared gongura chicken on my blog and it is a very delicious way of combining chicken with green leafy vegetable and also a healthy way of having a non veg dish.

Below I have shared every step on how to make this simple chicken dish with step by step instructions and hopefully a video procedure too would be updated if my version of this recipe is loved by my viewers…

Masala chai, a spiced indian tea and every Indian is familiar with this hot hot tea which is usually had at any time of the day in Indian households.

‘Tea’ Is commonly referred to as ‘chai‘ at Indian households and people drinking tea everywhere is a common sight in India and every part of India.

masala chai recipe

There are various kinds of tea that are usually made like ginger tea, cutting chai, masala chai, normal chai, irani chai commonly made in street corners.

Chai is something that almost every Indian can’t do without and to have a great start of the day we all love to enjoy hot cup of tea or coffee along with some chai biscuits.

I am very fond of tea and would love to try out various kinds of tea. There are also some various flavors that are usually available in markets like tulsi flavored tea powder, ginger flavor, herbal tea and these are ready made available tea powders that do not require to take extra efforts to separately make them at home.

But , not all places sell these spiced flavors of tea powder and we all usually get to buy basic tea powders in several brands. However, making freshly spiced tea at home is totally different from having it on streets.

The chai made at home tastes even more better than the chai consumed on the streets.

masala tea spices

In India, every street corner has a chai stall and masala chai flavored tea sold is one among those flavors which is suitable to be had during heavy rains or winters.

This chai is made with a specially made masala tea powder at home and it can be stored for a couple of days and used while making masala tea at home when ever required.

How to make this spiced masala tea:

To make this chai recipe, one needs to first make use of various Indian spices like cloves, cardamoms, cinnamon, pepper and dry ginger, powder them together and use it while making tea.

Masala chai is usually made with water, milk, sugar, basic tea powder and masala tea powder which are all mixed together and boiled well.

All the spices that are used to make this masala tea have lots of health benefits and when we think of masala tea the only thing that comes to my mind is of its many medicinal benefits.

Although, there are many stores that sell ready made masala tea powder but, I would suggest to make it at home and store as it is very easy to make and healthy as well.

Benefits of masala chai:

  1. If the tea is made without milk and using sugar, then one can have it as a miracle weight loss drink.
  2.  It aids in digestion and good for tummy related problems.
  3.  The tea uses dry ginger into it and dry ginger has many benefits like it helps in getting rid of cold, and cloves help in getting rid of cough.
  4.  The masala tea helps in preventing cancer, boosts energy, aids in digestion.
  5.  If sugar is skipped, then it is a very beneficial tea for those suffering from diabetes.

masala tea powder

Having masala chai is not only good for health as it uses many health beneficial indian spices but also keeps our body warm and a perfect drink to be consumed during winters and monsoons.

Indians like to drink a hot cup of tea during mornings and also love to consume tea in the evenings with some hot hot pakodas or any instant snacks recipes.

Below I have shared the miracle healthy hot drink recipe that one should consume often which is very beneficial to our body and can prevent us from various ailements like cold, cough, nausea as well as prevents us from various diseases.

Coriander powder or dhania powder, a basic Indian spice used in every recipe as a dry spice to make the curries or dishes delicious and yum.

This Indian dry spice is the most commonly used spice in every Indian kitchen and it gives aromatic flavors to every curry recipe added.

coriander powder or dhaniya powder

This spice is added in most of the vegetarian dishes and non vegetarian dishes as well. I am sure we all are familiar with this basic Indian spice.

Coriander powder is made by dry roasting the coriander seeds and the coriander seeds are useful in many ways.

How to grow coriander leaves at home:

Take few coriander seeds available at home, take a pot or we can even grow them on a fertile land. Just dig out some soil and spread the coriander seeds all over and then cover the seeds with the soil.

Sprinkle some water and make sure the area is moist. If planted in pots, then make sure to sprinkle water into the pot and keep it moist.

Make sure it gets sufficient sun. After few days it starts germinating and then it slowly develops into small and tiny herbs. The leaves appear to be fresh and they take around 20 to 25 days for the coriander leaves to appear fully and are ready to be used.

The plants again give out seeds and these seeds are powdered to be used as dhaniya powder at home.

The seeds appear slight brown in color and the leaves of coriander are green in color.

How to make coriander powder from coriander seeds:

It is very simple to make this powder and the powder is made by dry roasting the seeds, cooling the seeds and blending them into a fine powder.

This powder is ready to be used in all the curries made.

Uses or benefits of coriander:

  1. It is mostly used in curries because it helps in curing any stomach upset problems and it also treats all our tummy related problems like bloating, diarrhea etc…
  2. It reduces cholesterol levels, also lowers blood pressure levels.
  3. It also regulates menstrual cycle, nausea, stomach and most of the eye problems and allergies…

Which powder is better homemade or store bought?

I usually make all the spices such as garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder at home as these are fresh and give lots of fragrance compared to the store bought one’s.

I have used the store bought spices a lot many times and the taste varies a lot and the curries do not give out a good taste as compared to the home made spices.

I also make ginger garlic paste at home and never uses spices which are bought from markets.

I suggest everyone to make dhaniya powder at home as this is the best way to use in curries or in stir fry recipes since it has fresh aromatic flavors.

How to store the powder made at home:

1.After making the powder, store it in an air tight container and it can last upto many months if used regularly.

2. I suggest to make at least 250 gms of dhaniya seeds once in a while, powder them and store and not use more than that quantity because the powder loses its aroma if stored for long.

3. Long storage of the powder loses the aroma and also spoils the powder and is not suitable to be used in curries.

It is better to make the coriander powder in small quantities to sustain the aroma, fragrance and freshness.

All the above experiences are totally mine since I usually make the powder at home and use them in every dish I make.

It is not difficult to make and it can be made in just a couple of minutes.

Do share your thoughts on it and also please make sure to follow the directions as mentioned below to make the recipe.

  4. When the seeds are roasted well, a pleasant and aromatic fragrance comes out and that is when we come to know the seeds are dry roasted well.
  5. It takes about 4-5 minutes if we roast them on a very low flame for them to dry roast well.
  6. Once they are done, immediately switch off the flame.
  7. Allow the seeds to cool down.
  8. Take a blending jar, add the dry roasted seeds into the jar, blend them very finely.
