Hawaiian Chicken Luau
This Hawaiian dish is quite famous world wide. I first tasted this dish during my first trip to United States. I was really impressed by the subtle use of Greens along with Coconut Milk, which is not very common. But when it came to the greens, I found that the traditional dish calls for Taro leaves, which are quite commonly known as Arbi leaves or Colocasia leaves in most parts of India. I tried to find a substitute for Taro and ended up with our good old Spinach. If you are an adventurer in the world of food, then go ahead and prepare this wonderful dish with Taro/Arbi leaves. You can always substitute with Spinach, but it won't taste as good.
