Chicken in Spicy Spinach Sauce

Serve with: Basmati rice or flatbread and a side plate of sliced cucumber, and onion if desired, with a wedge of lemon or lime to refresh the palate and subdue the mild heat of the sauce. Bring the flavours of North India to your table with this chicken-and-vegetable dish. Garam masala is a ground spice mixture often used in Indian cuisine to add another layer of flavour. It is available in many supermarkets and all Indian grocery stores.
