Palak Paneer is a favourite of my DH and DD. It is yummy and creamy with loads of goodness in it.
I served it with three grain roti made of Wheat(1 cup), Ragi(1/3 cup) and Maize flour(1/3 cup). Though this roti is not as tasty as the wheat version it is quite healthy.
Palak 1 bunch- washed chopped
Tomato 2 nos
Onion 2 nos
Paneer cubed 15 pieces
Ginger 1 inch piece
Garlic 8 pods
Green chilly 1/2 (increase if you want the heat to be more)
Oil 2 tbls
Butter 1/2 tbls
Cumin seeds 1/2 tbls
Fennel seeds 1/2 tbls
Coriander 1 tbls
Garam masala 3/4 tbls
Salt as required
Sugar 1 tbls
Heat butter in the pan and cook the palak. It gets shrinked and gets cooked in its juice. Once cooled, grind into the paste with the juice.
Blanch tomatoes, grind and filter.
Grind onion, garlic, ginger and green chilly together.
Put Oil in the pan. Add Cumin and Fennel seeds to splutter. Add the Onion mixture and fry. Once the mixture is cooked, add the tomato mix and cook until the raw smell in tomato goes off. Add the powders and mix well. Add the palak paste and add a cup of water. Bring to a boil. Add the paneer. After 2 mins remove from fire and serve with roti.
