Palak Paneer | Spinach 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...!!!
