Easy butter masala

This is more of an easy dinner idea than a recipe.  My husband bought a couple bottles of this home.
So we made a meal out of it by cutting about a pound of chicken up into chunks and cooking them on the stovetop with some olive oil.  After that was cooked through, we added the jar of sauce, about a cup and a half of chopped cauliflower, and as much spinach as would fit in the pan with the lid on.  The spinach cooks down considerably so even if you add 3-4 cups of it, it becomes almost nothing after cooking.  After simmering for about 15 minutes, we ate this over rice.  It’s tasty.  This particular flavor has a touch of spice.  There are other flavors to choose from, as you can see on the Maya Kaimal website.  So if you like Indian food, give it a try!

We used almost the whole box of spinach.

    I have tried a few of the bottled sauces when wishing to have some nice Indian food. Some of them are very good. They are nice when you don’t have all of the ingredients on hand to make a homemade dish. Your meal looks colorful and good.

    It was as good as anything you can get downtown for lunch, and probably better since you added way more veggies to it.

    Funny how the water from the spinach makes that little jar go a long way.
