Spinach Paneer / Palak Paneer

Print Friendly and PDF

Spinach Paneer          
                                  (  Palak Paneer )
Spinach Paneer is an authentic, simple recipe full of flavor and aroma.  This is one of the  North Indian delicacy. I made this recipe last night.  It was very tasty and much healthier than the restaurants version. It served marvellous with Naan and  chapattis.  In this recipe, fresh spinach is trimmed,  chopped to small pieces, cooked and simmered with Paneer and spices.   We know, Palak is a rich source of vitamins, fibre  and Paneer is loaded with protein and minerals.  So, this dish is very healthy and always a crowd pleaser...!!!

Here is the easy to follow Palak Paneer recipe…:)
