Palak Paneer

Palak paneer is probably the most appreciated in 'Green n Leafy' category. It has the goodness of palak and the taste of paneer... can it get any better?
So here is how I like to make it...

Ingredients:
  • 1 bunch of spinach (palak)
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 4 green chilies
  • 1/2 tea spoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 inch ginger 
  • 2 table spoon whipped cream
  • 200 gm paneer cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tea spoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon oil/ghee/butter
  • Salt to taste
Method:
  • In a blender add spinach, green chilies, ginger and blend to make puree.
  • Heat oil/ghee/butter in a pan. When oil is heated, add cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  • Add onion and cook till is golden brown. 
  • Now add the puree and let it simmer for 7-8 mins.
  • Add garam masala, salt and paneer cubes. Mix well and cover the pan.
  • After a 1-2 minutes the paneer cubes should absorb moisture and be soft.
  • Turn off the flame and add cream. Stir it and leave it cover for sometime.
Tips:
  • If you have frozen paneer, keep it in boiling water for few minutes, drain and then use.
  • You can use whole milk (unskimmed) instead of cream.
