Palak paneer Recipe

Palak paneer an authentic Punjabi or Kashmiri dish teamed with Roti or Naan is amazing!!! Spinach is pureed and sautéed in fragrant spices. Roasted paneer /cottage cheese is added to it and it is simmered gently. Cream could be drizzled over it too, but I prefer to serve without it!


  • 2 bunches Palak/Spinach blanched
  • 3 large onions sliced
  • 2 large tomatoes chopped
  • 1 inch piece of ginger grated
  • 7green chillies
  • A small bunch of coriander leaves
  • 200 gms Paneer/cottage cheese
  • 2 tbsps ghee/clarified butter
  • 4 tbsps oil
  • 1 tsp jeera/ cumin seeds

Method :

Add the tomatoes and roast till mushy. Remove and allow to cool. Puree the blanched palak, the roasted onions and coriander leaves. Boil well. Lightly roast the Paneer cubes.
