Palak Paneer Curry!!!

Hi guys!!!

Who does not like paneer??!!! Not me :-) I use paneer atleast once a week in my dishes. Mostly for some curry to go with rotis. I was having a hard time finding Palak here in the supermarkets and finally when I found it, I immediately knew what I was going to prepare with it. Apart from Palak paneer, I love to use palak in palak rice.

The recipe for Palak paneer is very simple. It is one of the dishes that can be easily included in the under-30-minute meals. Now lets see the recipe.


Paneer - 250 gms
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Green chillies - 2
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Corriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp


1. Heat oil in a kadai and add the cumin seeds and let them splutter. Next add the chopped onions and saute till they turn soft and transparent.
2. Now add the ginger garlic paste followed by the chopped tomatoes and mix well. Let them cook for a few minutes till they combine well.
3. Meanwhile blanch the palak leaves (cook in boiling water and immediately wash in cold water) and grind it along with the green chillies into a fine paste.
4. When the tomatoes have cooked well add all the masala powders, salt and the palak paste and mix well. Reduce spice powders if you prefer a lower spice level.
5. Let this mixture cook in low heat for 10 minutes or till the raw smell of the masala leaves.
6. Finally add the paneer cubes and mix well and simmer for 5 minutes. (You can fry the paneer cubes or add as such).

Serve hot with rotis!!!
