BM #105 Week 4 Day 2 - 

I was surprised to note that I haven't posted Palak Paneer in my blog. To be honest, it has been a while since I made at home too. 

Years ago, I remember my older one not liking it and so I think it was fixed in my head that it won't be liked by the kids and so never thought about it. A few days back, I saw the recipe of Palak Paneer in my social media feed and I was tempted to make it at home.

It came a surprise to me that all of us loved it and I was secretly yelling at myself for not having made this all these years :).

Ingredients - 

Palak/Spinach 1 1/2 cups (I used frozen)
Paneer cubed 1 1/2 cups
Onion finely chopped 1/2 cup
Ginger-Garlic-Green Chili paste 2 tsp
Tomato Pureed 1/2 cup
Salt, Coriander Powder as needed
Red Chili powder, Garam Masala as needed
Milk/Cream 1/4 cup 
Kasuri Methi 2 pinches
Seasoning (Oil 2 Tbsp, Cumin seeds 1 tsp)

Method Of Preparation -

Keep the paneer cubes soaked in water for 10-15 minutes.

In a heated heavy bottomed pan, add oil and cumin seeds. After the cumin seeds have crackled, add onions, ginger-garlic-green chili paste and saute until the onions are golden brown in color.

Add in the pureed tomatoes, sprinkle coriander powder, garam masala and salt. Mix well and allow it to cook. Keep it covered.

Meanwhile thaw the frozen spinach and make a puree adding as little water as needed. Set aside.

When the oil floats in the onion tomato mixture, transfer the spinach puree into the pan, mix well and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes.

Pour the cream/milk and allow it to boil. Slide in the soaked paneer cubes, sprinkle kasuri methi and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat, serve it warm with roti/naan/pulao/rice.


Preparation Time 25-30 minutes
Serves 4-5
