Palak Paneer

Palak Paneer is one of our family favorites.Me and my brother loved that dish especially when it is from Minerva.Yes, the same Minerva that I keep raving about.So here is my take on that dish.
1 bag Fresh Spinach, roughly chopped;I am not very fond of the frozen ones
1/4 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 garlic cloves
5 long green chillies,halved and vertically slit
1 medium Onion chopped
1/2 cup tomato sauce or 2 tomatoes, chopped
Pinch of turmeric
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp cumin coriander powder
1 tbsp curry powder
1 tbsp garam masala
1/4 tsp Kasoori Methi
1 pint cream
1 tbsp butter
1 block of Paneer, cubed (I used Nanak Paneer)
  • Heat a tbsp of butter in a pan and fry the paneer pieces until brown
  • Remove them from the pan and place them on a paper napkin to drain any excess butter Boil Spinach in water for 8 min.Drain the water
  • Grind the Spinach to a puree
  • In the same pan, add a tsp of oil and add cumin seeds
  • Add onions and let them cook for a bit and add tomatoes or the sauce depending on what you are using, green chillies and turmeric.
  • Stir in the cumin coriander powder,Kasoori Methi, curry powder and garam masala
  • Add the pureed spinach and simmer for 10 min
  • Add the fried paneer
  • Drizzle the cream
  • Serve it with roti or rice

Have fun,

Wow. palak panner Looks yummy... I was going through your blog and noticed you mentioned Minerva. Is this restaurant in hyd ? It was my all-time favorite, I use to hang out with my college mates and bf...I still remember going to this place, whenever we use to crave for good food and stop by after a good movie... I never tried palak panner, but im big fan of panner butter masala from this place. We use to enjoy it all the time with naan and pulav. Now if I want to have it I’m stuck in CA, I need to book a flight, plan a vacation, for me and kids. Can believe just changes, lol... Btw nice blog
