Easy Palak Paneer


In a Pan, Add 1 tsp oil, heat it add 2 green chilli's and washed chopped palak leaves and saute it, till palak shrinks. cool it down. Grind it along cashews with little water.

Boil 1 cup of water with 2 tomatoes for 5 mins. or microwave at very high for 5 mins. when the tomatoes peel off their skin, remove the skin and grind the tomatoes alone to get tomato puree.

Add Salt to taste, Corriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala and mix well with the onions. Add the tomato puree and let it boil for 2 minutes. Then Add Palak Puree and let it boil. add little water to get desired consistency.

Add Paneer Cube's to the Palak in the Pan, let it boil for few minutes and serve Hot.

  6. Love the colour of the palak paneer dear,Clicks are awesome...

  7. I absolutely LOVE Palak Paneer. I order it everything I go to a local Indian restaurant. However, I've never tried to make it but with your recipe and photographs (which are awesome), you've inspired me. I notice you don't tell how to make the paneer. Do you make it or is it something you buy? I live in the southwest USA so it's not a standard item in our grocery stores, but I might be able to find it in a specialty market. Thanks!

  8. Ahhhhh...yummmm Palak paneer..

  9. Isn't it so simple to make. I reduce one more step from this. Use baby spinach or chopped spinach and thus not needing to puree it. Your presentation is tempting.

  10. Yum! I have never cooked with paneer, but am really interested in trying. Do you have a good recipe to make it from scratch?
