Palak paneer

Palak paneer is my sons favourite basically he loves eating paneer and making combination of palak(spinach) and paneer (cottage cheese )

and paneer makes me easy to incorparate palak in his stomach

Ingriedients :

1 bunch of palak

200 gms of paneer

salt per taste

1 small onion

1 tablespoon  of   garlic ginger paste

1 small tomato

1 bay leaf

2 cloves 3 to 4 pepper corns

1 teaspoon  of jeera /cumin seeds

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 green chili finely chopper

haldi powder as per taste

2 tablespoon fresh cream

1 tablespoon of ghee or butter


Procedure : First take a pan and add one and half cup of water and boil palak for few minuter and grind using a blender .Take ghee or butter in the pan and then add jeera , bay leaf cloves and pepper corns.then add onion garlic paste in it fry till it turn brown then add chopped onion and saute it till it is brown and after that add tomato to the pan .once the tomato are done in the pan add pureed palak to the mixture in pan addd salt as peer taste  and let it cook until the water from the palak dries up it may take 10-15 minutes till the gravy becomes thick then add garam masala and  cream to the gravy .

at last add the paneer cubes to the gravy i dont prefer to fry the paneer before adding to the gravy if you like paneer fried you can add them after frying 

few people use a little bengal gram flour to make the gravy thick one can use this technique if you are using less palak to make the dish

also few people like to add a extra jeera and red chili tadka once the gravy is done it is completely optional but you can always try these technique and discover the way you love to eat the dish
