One of the most difficult tasks for me is to decide what to cook each morning. My son made that easier today when he asked me to make one his favourite dishes, Palak Paneer. Easy to prepare and nutritious too! This one is for you Nishant! 😀

This is what you’ll need

Palak (spinach): 300gms

Paneer: 200gms

Onion: 1

Ginger: 1/2″ piece

Green chillies: 4

Tomatoes: 2

Cream: 2tbsp

Garam masala: 1tsp

Oil: 2tsp

Salt to taste.

Let’s get cooking

1. Wash the palak leaves. Cook them in just enough water and grind to a puree.

2. Finely chop the onions, tomatoes and green chillies. Grate the ginger.

3. Cut the paneer into 1/2 inch cubes and fry in a pan without using oil, until brown. (This step is optional. You can cut the paneer and use it directly without frying)

4. Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions until brown.

5. Add the green chillies and grated ginger and fry for a couple of minutes.

6. Mix in the chopped tomatoes and cook until soft and pulpy.

7. Add the palak puree, paneer pieces, salt and garam masala. Mix well. Bring the mixture to a boil.

8. Add the cream. Add a little water, if too thick. Serve hot with parathas.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4
