Palak Paneer Recipe

Hello Food Lovers,

I’m a foodie too and like anything tasty. (Of course! sometimes I have to tolerate not so tasty food…but not everyyyytimeeee ;)). I miss some dishes of North India and so-called Punjabi Dhabas here, do no justice to the taste of authentic cuisines. So I decided to learn by myself until I get it tasty.

Here I am with my super hit recipe of Palak Paneer. Whenever I make it, it comes out tastier as ever. The recipe is simple, less time taking, healthy and easy one. When your guests are around, give this recipe a try, you will find them asking for more Mouth Watering

Here is the recipe:

Serves 3 people (or better 2 :D)

All you need:-

  • Spinach – a bunch, just remove the ends and no need to remove the entire stem.
  • Tomato – 1 big size, chopped
  • Onion – 1 medium size, chopped
  • Ginger – 1 inch, grated
  • Green chillies – 1, very fine chopped
  • Beaten Curd – 1 tbsp (Curd can be replaced with 1/2 tbsp cream or 1/2 tbsp fresh malai but that makes it high calorie dish)
  • Spices:
    • Salt – 1 small tsp
    • Turmeric Powder – 1 small tsp
    • Garlic Chutney – 1 small tsp
    • Garam Masala – 1 small tsp
