Palak Paneer

1. Fresh palak(spinach) 1 bunch
2.Paneer 200 gms
3.Onion 1 count
4.Green chillis-4
5.Ginger garlic paste 1 tspn
6.Whole garam masala( lavang, Dalchin,cardomom,pepper each 3 count),bay leaves
7.Jeera powder 1/2 tspn
8.Dhaniya powder 1 tspn
9.Chilli powder 1/2 tspn.
For making palak puree: Cook palak in boiling water until it is soft.This takes around 5 to 10 mins.Then drain the water from the palak and put aside.When it is almost cool grind it to a fine paste.Now the puree is ready.

1.First fry the paneer in a pan till it is brown.I usually bring swad frozen fried paneer.I take outside 2 hrs before cooking,and just fry for 1 to 2 mins in a pan to get rid off the raw smell.
2.Take out the paneer from the pan and add all whole garam masala to it,then slowly add cut onion and green chillies.
3. When onions almost fried add ginger garlic paste.Now we can add jeera,Daniya and chilli powder.
4. We can add palak purée to the masala and cook around 5 to 10 mins.Add one cup of water to the purée.We can add water depends upon the consistency how thick the gravy we prefer.
5.when the palak is cooking I add fried paneer to the mixture and cook around 5 to 10 mins.
6. Delicious palak paneer is now ready.We Can eat with rice or roti.
