A lot of people blanch their spinach. However, I wouldn’t really recommend it as it does take away a lot of the nutrients of the spinach. The main purpose of blanching spinach is to preserve the colour and flavour when you freeze it. But you don’t need to blanch it unless you are going to freeze it for a prolonged period of time. Otherwise, it is best to just freeze as it is or even better just use it fresh!
This is one of the healthier curries out there. Due to the double power combination of spinach and chicken, it is packed with protein. Chicken has its own array of benefits and spinach has its own. Both combined are an absolute dream of a combination in this delicious curry recipe.
