Instructions
  1. Notch the chicken legs by cutting gashes into the flesh which will allow the marinade and flavors to penetrate the meat.

  3. Add all the spinach along with some water in a heavy saucepan and cover and cook for 5 minutes till fully wilted. Mash the mixture in your blender and set aside for later.
  4. Heat up the ghee in a saucepan and when hot saute the onions. Once they turn translucent then adjoin in the ginger and garlic and cook.
