  3. MEANWHILE, heat ghee/oil and paste in fry pan. add garlic, shallots and ginger, frying until softened.
  4. add mixture to blender and blend with spinach until somewhat smooth. Set aside.
  5. brown chicken in same pan with scrapings of garlic/shallots.
  6. pour spinach mixture over chicken and reduce heat.
  7. stir in cream/yoghurt and heat until chicken cooked thru

  8. TIPS: this is really saucy and my family likes it with pasta. Not enough time for dinner? cut chicken into strips! No curry paste? try a powder if you must
