  • This was AMAZING!!! Thank you SO much! - 3/8/10

  • This recipe was easy to make and it looked and tasted great. The red tomatoes, green spinach and the yellow from the turmeric made for a colorful dish. I cooked it all at once instead of setting the chicken aside, and just poured some boiling water on the spinach to wilt it. Will make again! - 3/3/10

  • Doesn't look like any saag I've ever eaten. Came out a disturbing kakhi colour and the kids wouldn't eat it. Overall it tasted good but I won't be making it again as I still have 3/4 of a pot left eat! - 1/2/10

    This is almost exactly the same as the Chicken Saag recipe I use!My only variation on this is that I don't bother boiling the spinach, nor pureeing it, just add near the end. Variants: for milder add yogurt at end, and for my fave "hot" version I add a lil chili and about 1.5cm cubed creamed coconut - 12/6/07

  • Very good. The color turned my kids off a bit, but the taste was very good. - 10/29/07

  • Pretty good. I used 2-10oz packages of frozen spinach instead of fresh because I had it handy. Still turned out good. I did end up adding a little bit more milk to make it more moist. Overall very good, nice flavor.
    SARAHFIM: I think the "1 whole clove" refers to a whole clove (a spice) - 10/5/07
