Palak Paneer comes within Indian cuisine. Its also called Paneer in Palak Gravy or Paneer in Spinach Gravy. Its super healthy and very easy to make. For making Palak Paneer/spinach curry, all you need is fresh Spinach/Palak and Paneer(which is indian cottage cheese). Its full of energy and Iron. Palak paneer comes to my mind whenever we talk about healthy and green vegetable. I have tried making palak paneer using so many recipes, but after five years I have discovered that  this is the best palak paneer recipe. You should never use tomatoes or tomato gravy in palak paneer, it changes the colour from green to something really bad. One more thing I discovered is that when you boil the palak/spinach, you should never over boil it and should transfer it immediately to ice cold water to retain the green colour. Sometimes in hurry, I just cook spinach/palak with rice, it’s amazing.

Palak Paneer is a North Indian dish, which is generally served with roti/chapati or rice. Whenever I cook palak paneer, I just love to eat it with plain naan or Garlic naan, which is a perfect match for me.
