    " It was not good "

    I was really excited to try this recipe--and I did, exactly as it was written.. It did not taste like normal chicken saag.. was definitely lacking something and I couldn't quite put my finger on it.. wish I could because it was pretty simple.

    I've never cooked Saag because other recipes look so time consuming and would really make a mess of my kitchen, plus we have several Indian restuarants close by, BUT this looks good and easy! I will be trying this really soon! Thanks so much for the easy recipe for my favorite Indian dish!
