Palak Paneer

This recipe was inspired from a Sanjeev Kapoor's cooking show and i like this recipe so much from that day. I have been preparing my mind to cook this as soon as possible and that never happened. Yesterday i forced my self to cook this and taste. And OMG that was so tasty i was not able to believe my self that i cooked this dish . Quick to make and good to eat is the perfect caption for Palak paneer! This is a tasty vegetable dish and it is full of good nutrients too. When greens are delicately spiced and seasoned they are transformed into tasty dishes that are popular with adults and children.


Ingredient's
Spinach 2 large bunches
Cottage cheese (paneer) 200 grams
Green chillies 2-3
Garlic 8-10 cloves
Oil 3 tablespoons
Cumin seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Lemon juice 1 tablespoon
Fresh cream 4 tablespoons




Cooking Method
Remove stems, wash spinach thoroughly in running water. Blanch in salted boiling water for two minutes. Refresh in chilled water. Squeeze out excess water. Remove stems, wash and roughly chop green chillies. Grind spinach into a fine paste along with green chillies. Dice paneer into one inch by one inch by half inch pieces. Peel, wash and chop garlic. Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds. When they begin to change colour, add chopped garlic and sauté for half a minute. Add the spinach puree and stir. Check seasoning. Add water if required. When the gravy comes to a boil, add the paneer and mix well. Stir in lemon juice. Finally add fresh cream. Serve hot.
