  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp coriander powder

“Green butter chicken!”


  • Wash the spinach well, trim and discard the root portion and place the leaves and stems into a heatproof bowl. Pour boiling water over the spinach and leave for one minute. Drain, then puree the spinach in a blender.
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat and add the oil and the cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and onion. Fry the onion for about three minutes until it starts to brown, add the garlic and ginger and fry for a further two minutes.
  • Add the coriander, cumin, turmeric, chilli and garam masala, stir and then immediately add the tomatoes. Cook for about two minutes until the tomatoes soften, then add the chicken.
  • Fry the Lilydale free range chicken for three minutes, then add the salt, sugar and stir in the spinach puree. Cook uncovered for about five minutes until the chicken is cooked through, then add the nutmeg and stir through the cream.
  • Taste, and adjust seasoning as necessary, then stir through the butter and serve.
