Many of the best loved vegetarian Punjabi dishes are the ones where paneer is combined with a vegetable. Paneer is widely used and very popular in Punjab due to the abundance of milk and milk products in the area.


This combination of spinach and paneer is not only highly nutritious, but is a splendid blend of taste, texture and flavour. The paneer in this recipe has been fried to add some extra flavour. You can however add the paneer pieces without frying if required.


Serve with rotis or parathas .

Came out pretty well. But probably the ginger and garlic were on the higher side.

I always liked palak paneer but dint cook it like this. Today when i was about to make it my i thought why not try it in a different pattern so i searched in the internet and obviously among all the links anybody would click on to tarla dalal recipes. They are simple yet delicious. I have tried many recipes of yours maam and as always my palak paneer has also turned out to be yummy. My family specially my mother in law is happy to taste it although i dint cook in her way. Thanks for the recipe.
