One of the most popular ingredients in Indian vegetarian cooking has to be paneer or cottage cheese. So many different types of dishes are prepared in various parts of India using paneer. These days paneer has become even more popular as it is commonly available in shops as compared to some decades ago when it was generally made at home- quite laboriously, I may add.
Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes for dishes made with Paneer, such as:-
Spinach or palak as it is called in Hindi has many health benefits, as we all know.
Today's recipe combines both these ingredients and is called Palak Paneer. It goes great with rice and rotis. I have made different versions of this popular dish in the past. Today, I have adapted this from Palak Paneer in Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana.
I am sure you will enjoy this as much as we do.
