Kashmiri Palak and Chicken Recipe.

HI Guys! today i'm going to share how we Kashmiri's normally cook our Spinach and chicken meal. Its easy and yummy. if your recipe vary, you can share that in the comments below!


Spinach 1 kg.
Chicken 1 whole.
Garlic 3 - 5.
vegetable oil 2 - 3 tablespoons
Salt to taste.
Red Chillies 1 teaspoon.
Ginger powder 1/2 teaspoon.
Turmeric 2 - 3 teaspoons.


We will cook chicken and spinach separately and mix them together in the end.

1. Put chicken in a bowl with water, little salt, 1 teaspoon turmeric and boil. As soon as it boils drain the water and let it sit in a strainer.

2. Clean the spinach and put it in a big utensil with water and a little salt. Boil till the volume is reduced. Strain the water.

3. Fry the spinach. In a pressure cooker put the fully strained spinach along with chopped garlic, oil and salt.

4. Beat the spinach when frying to make a paste using a wooden spoon.

5. When it starts to give off oil add other spices and mix thoroughly. Add a little water if need be.

6. In a separate utensil put the drained chicken, add oil, salt and chopped garlic. Fry for 15 to 20 minutes on a low flame.

7. Add spices and fry a little more.

8. Add enough water that covers the chicken pieces.

9. Let it boil and keep it boiling till the chicken is tender.

10. Add this chicken along with its soup to the spinach prepared.

11. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes.

12. Serve with naan or rice.

  1. That looks yummy!
    We put a little dalchini, green cardamoms, and cloves in with palaak chicken too. We boil the chicken with turmeric first then fry it too.

    1. Hi..
      I love it with dal chini and cloves too but my mum is against it. She doest like them much on daily basis. so it has become kind of our habit not to add any of these spices.. we dont miss them now 😂
