Palak Paneer is a traditional North Indian delicacy and an integral part of the Punjabi cuisine. It is also one of the favorite dishes to many especially the kids coz the influence of Popeye the Sailor gulping cans of Spinach and acquiring tonnes of super energy. It’s a nice way of feeding nutritious dishes to kids who do not eat a proper balanced diet.
 
Palak Paneer is an Indian gravy based curry made of spinach and paneer (a non melting Indian cheese) in a tomato and onion gravy with Indian spices. It’s a very popular vegetariandelicacy. The dish looks very appetizing due to the combination of its natural green and white colors of the spinach and paneer.
 
This dish is mildly flavored and not a very spicy curry. Normally in the state of Punjab, Palak paneer is a speciality dish in most of the dhabas. Palak paneer is served with hot Indian flat breads accompanied with a glass of Lassi.
Anyways Palak paneer is truly a guilt free, satisfying well balanced delicious dish.
 
Spinach is a versatile vegetable. Spinach works well when combined with most or any type of cuisine whether you’re adding it to dal, pasta, stir-frys, curries, noodles, quesadillas,pizza… etc, the culinary possibilities are virtually endless.
 
Spinach is very healthy, nutritious and full of antioxidants. It’s also high in iron, vitamins A & C and even calcium. Preparing the Palak paneer is quiet very simple. In a large pot of boiling water, blanch the spinach leaves for just a minute or two. Remove, drain well in a colander and run under cold water. This will stop the cooking process and also set their lovely green color.
 
Do not cover the vessel while boiling the spinach or else you will lose the fresh green color of spinach. Using a food processor or blender, puree the spinach into a smooth paste. Do not over blend otherwise you may end up with spinach juice. In a large pan over medium medium heat, add about 1 tbsp of the oil add whole garam masala (cardamom, clove and cinnamon),cumin seeds, chopped garlic and onions and sauté till the onions turn golden color.
 
Add little salt and mix. Once the onions turn brown add ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder and mix. Add chopped tomatoes and mix well. Allow to cook on medium flame till the tomatoesare mashed completely. Add cumin powder, coriander powder, chilli powder, crushed fenugreek leaves (kasoori methi), chopped green chillies and mix.
 
Add the palak puree and cook well till it releases oil. Lastly add the paneer cubes and little freshly grated nutmeg and mix well. Add cream to give extra richness and taste to the dish (cream can be optional for dieters). The palak paneer is ready. Serve with fresh rotis and fragnant Basmati rice.
 
Palak Paneer (gravy) has always been a favourite among all the paneer lovers, not only for the great taste it holds, but also for the nutritional components present in it. Palak Paneer is an entirely “Green” dish, as it contains a whole lot of Palak (green leafy vegetable) which is highly recommended for a good health. It then contains the famous “Paneer” which is loved by most people.
