Palak Paneer

If there is one dish in which my family loves Spinach, my vote is undoubtedly for "Palak Paneer". Its simple and nutritious dish makes my family have an extra bite of chapati. Lets go for the recipe now.


Palak leaves - a bunch
Paneer - 150gm, cubed
Milk - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1
Green chillies -2
Ginger - 1 inch
Garlic - 4
Cloves -3, cardamom stick - 1/2
Oil - 1 tbsp
Butter - 1/2tsp


Heat oil in a pan and add cloves and cardamom. After they splutter add ginger, garlic, green chillies and onions. Saute them well and add the washed palak leaves to this. Cook for 3 minutes and turn off the flame to let it cool.

Grind, after it cools down to a smooth paste.

Heat butter in a pan and the ground paste. Add salt and let it boil for a minute. To this add the milk and let it boil for 1 more minute.

You can add cream to this instead of milk which enhances the flavor more. Turn off flame.

Before serving add the cubed paneer pices to the gravy. If the paneer pieces are not fresh, you can deep/shallow fry them and add it.

Serve with ur favorite rice or Rotis.
