Palak-Paneer( Cottage cheese cooked with spinach)

This is one of the well known Indian paneer/cottage cheese dish.Here paneer is cooked in spinach gravy.One thing I like about this recipe is that it does not contain much oil and other spices yet it looks and tastes wonderful.What is better than home made paneer, so check out my another post of How To Make Paneer At Home.

Palak/spinach 250 gm

Paneer/cottage cheese 100 gm
Onion 1 small
Ginger 1 inch
Garlic 2 pods
Garam masala 1 tsp
Red chili pw 1 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp

1. Wash the spinach leaves and pressure cook it with 1/2 cup water for 1 wistle.
2. Grind the boiled leaves to make a paste and keep it aside.
3. Cut paneer into small cubes.
4. Heat oil in a pan and add finally chopped onions,ginger and garlic.Fry till golden in colour.
5. Add the spinach puree to the pan.Now add salt and other masalas in it.
6. Check the consistency if required add a little water.
7. Bring it to boil.Finally add the paneer peices to this gravy.Heat for 2 more minutes.
8. Now its ready to serve with roti,naan or paratha.

Note:If you like whole red chili(sabut lal mirch) then you can add 1-2 in the hot oil just before adding onions.
