This chicken curry tastes different just by adding the ingredients in a different order. Addition of spinach lends a wonderful colour and no one will notice the vegetable as well unless you tell them…..Not me!!
1 whole chicken cut into small pieces
2 large onions chopped
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 large tomato chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
2 whole dry red chilies
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 teaspoon garam masala
½ tsp turmeric powder
5 tbsp oil
1-2 cups finely chopped spinach (not packed)
Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds. Add dry chilies.
Add onions and saute till the edges start to brown.
Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes.
Now add tomatoes and some salt and saute till tomatoes become mushy.
Add all the dry powders and saute well.
Add chicken pieces and 1 cup boiling water. Cook till the chicken is done. Adjust salt.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves if you wish.
