This is a recipe that has many names. A popular dish in the north Indian cuisine, the succulent meat is cooked and simmered with spices in a nutritious sauce made with spinach.
I would be lying big time if I told you that this is something I grew up eating. I did not, and it was never ever cooked at home by maa. We only ordered Palak Chicken (another name it goes by) when we ate in restaurants. But as years went by with me trying out different things in my kitchen, this has become a favorite. While Palak Paneer still scores higher than any spinach recipe, Palak Chicken/Murgh Saagwala/Spinach Chicken is a welcome change at home. Saag in Hindi refers to any leafy greens. Palak is spinach. So Palak is a Saag, but all Saag is not Palak Have I confused you yet?
