  5. Then, Onion shallot and Chilies, mix and cook for about 3 minutes until they become soft. Next the tomato and the salt combine them and cook it until it becomes soft and let it cool down.

  6. To grill the Chicken thighs. Heat a pan, grease it lightly with Olive Oil. Put them in the hot pan skin side down first then cook them until it has a gorgeous caramelized color on medium or medium high heat. Turn them over and cook another side the same way. Turning them a couple of times, cook in total of 10 minutes then keep it aside.

  7. To blend, add in the cooked spices with the Spinach in the blender as well as a quarter cup of water. Blend it until it becomes a smooth sauce and transfer into a bowl. Add in quarter cup of water into the blender to remove the extra sauce from it and join it into the Spinach sauce.

Garnish with the cream if you like and enjoy with Rice, Roti, or Bread.
