This dish marries veg and meat together by braising the chicken in a spicy spinach sauce. It’s not as heavy as other curries as it's filled with nutritious veg and contains no cream, just a little bit of butter. It’s best enjoyed over Basmati rice with some sliced shallots on top along with a dollop of yoghurt.

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Get the onions on

    Heat some oil in a lidded pan over medium heat, and fry the onion for 8 mins.

    Meanwhile boil a kettle full of water and put the spinach in a colander in the sink. Pour boiled water over the spinach until the leaves wilt, then run cold water over them to cool them down. 

  • 2.

    Add the chicken and spices

    Next, add the ginger to the pan and fry for 1 min.

    Add the SAAG PASTE and 1 tbsp water to the pan and fry for 1 min.

    Turn the heat down to medium-low and add the chicken, the PUNJABI SPICE MIX and 1 tbsp water.

    Stir in the SAAG CURRY STOCK.

    Squeeze the water out of the spinach and then stir it into the pan. Cover with a lid and let it cook for 5 mins. 

  • 3.

    Finishing touches

    Take off the lid and turn the heat up for a few mins to finish cooking the chicken through and to reduce the liquid down. You should be left with a slightly thick spinach-y curry with a little bit of sauce.

    Turn off the heat and stir the butter through until it has melted in.

    Heat the rice according to pack instructions. 

  • 4.

    Serve!

    Serve the saag over rice with a spoonful of yoghurt on top to balance the flavours.

Mrs sharon - Jan 13, 2019

Very nice so much flavour.

Lindsay - Jan 13, 2019

Tasted good but very pungent smell which took 2 days to get rid of.

Niel - Jan 13, 2019

For me it was watery and it the best but then it maybe down to me being a crap cook!!!

Heather - Jan 12, 2019

Very tasty but not quite what I was expecting. Very little sauce. More like a biryani

D - Jan 12, 2019

Slightly saltier than expected but very tasty and different to the regular curry dishes ( slightly lighter and less creamier )

Kellu - Jan 10, 2019

Very tasty

Adriano - Jan 08, 2019

This was OK, just OK though. I felt it was lacking something, it was just a little too bland.

Kirsty - Jan 05, 2019

One of my favourite dishes - although served with prawns. Yoghurt was a great way for it to be less spicy for me, whilst no yoghurt meant it hit the right notes for the husband!

Liz - Jan 05, 2019

Way too salty for me. Literally had to drink two big glasses of water an hour later and my husband felt the same.

Nigel - Jan 04, 2019

Very easy. Very nice

Jade - Jan 03, 2019

Tasty dish :) would have liked a bit more sauce :) x

Michal - Jan 02, 2019

Really nice curry, a little spicy full of flavours and the spinach goes so well with the chicken. Would recommend for Biryani lovers.

Becky - Jan 02, 2019

Fantastic- def have this one again

Jackie - Jan 02, 2019

Loved it!

Chelsea - Dec 30, 2018

Ok, but found ginger a bit over powering

Mark - Dec 30, 2018

Not much flavour and not any spice/heat at all.

Joanne - Dec 29, 2018

Wasn’t overly impressed with this one and was more of a faff to prepare than my previous recipes. Flavour was OK but will not be ordering this again.

Claire - Dec 26, 2018

Not enough sauce for me.

Eleanor - Dec 21, 2018

Delicious curry with just right amount of heat for me. I missed out the butter and think the amount of spinach suggested is a bit OTT (I used about half and turned out fine). Would definitely order again

Alex - Dec 20, 2018

Yumm! And really easy

Sally - Dec 19, 2018

Tasty even with double the chicken

Katie - Dec 18, 2018

My favourite so far.

Nicola - Dec 15, 2018

Not as tasty as the others I’ve tried

Louise - Dec 14, 2018

Fabulous dish. Quick and easy and very tasty.

Karen - Dec 13, 2018

This was nice but I didn’t like the smell when it was cooking. Better tasting though. However my middle pot of spices was empty when I opened it and so I had to cook without that pot which may have made all the difference. I won’t know unless I buy it again.

Mara - Dec 12, 2018

More please!

Alison - Dec 10, 2018

This was delicious even though mine didn’t look it. I used two portions of frozen spinach instead, so maybe that’s why. We would definitely have this again!

Helen - Dec 10, 2018

Not a fan of spinach. Replaced with green beans, but didn’t really work

Lesley - Dec 09, 2018

A firm favourite

Beauleiu - Dec 08, 2018

Ok

Lindsay - Dec 06, 2018

Love it!

Lucie - Dec 04, 2018
