Here is a lovely, double-layered Au Gratin that will bowl over all your guests! First comes a luscious paneer layer that features crumbled paneer held together with myriad ingredients like bread, potatoes and curds, flavoured with a dash of green chillies and coriander.

This is followed by a spinach layer, which is wisely perked up with fenugreek leaves for extra josh. And of course, no Au Gratin is complete without cheese, so a generous garnish of cheese, followed by the appropriate baking procedure completes the irresistible Layered Spinach Paneer Au Gratin. Enjoy it right off the oven!

Pair it with some Curried Beans Pasta for a hearty meal.
