Who doesn’t love Palak Paneer? It’s cottage cheese cubes /Paneer in creamy, spicy spinach gravy and this is so flavourful that people who are not a big fan of spinach also eat with utmost delight.

At my home both my kids love to eat this and is one of their favourite vegetarian gravies. After a long time of cooking it traditionally a few years back, I developed a recipe which is foolproof, easy and gives beautiful texture and colour. So do try this and see for yourself…
