Palak Paneer, an evergreen delicacy from North India, is perhaps one of the most interesting ways to include spinach in your meal. It features in restaurant menus too, as it goes well with most Indian breads like Tandoori Naan or Roti.

The highlight of this subzi is the flavour-packed palak gravy, which works effectively not just with paneer but also with potatoes or koftas.

You can make a variant of this gravy with garlic (Lehsuni Paneer Palak Subzi) if you want a peppier flavour. The palak and paneer combo is one of the most popular ones, not just because of the fabulous way they complement each other, but also because of the nutritional benefits.

Spinach is loaded with iron and fibre, while paneer is rich in protein. This makes it a nice recipe to include in your everyday cookbook.

You can cook an array of dishes with this duo, such as the Palak Paneer Toast, Palak-Paneer-Roti and Palak Paneer Rice.

You can even stuff it into crisp, golden dosa to make Palak Paneer Dosa one of Mumbai’s favourite street foods. With so many options at hand, there is no excuse to not include palak frequently in your diet!

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ankita, The taste depends highly on the palak. Still, you can add little sugar or cream to balance the bitterness.
