Steps to Make Palak Paneer….

Palak Paneer is one of the famous palak recipe/palak dish.For every spinach recipe , spinach should be washed and cleaned properly so that there will be no soil stuck to it.Spinach is one of the healthy vegetable you can have. 

Honestly , I never liked palak paneer ever in my life. But once I was invited at someone’s house for dinner ,they prepared palak paneer. That was the first time I liked palak paneer and wanted to have it more. 

You can use tofu instead of paneer as well. Also , I always like my paneer dish to have little bit fried paneer cubes (fried till it turns to light golden brown) in it.You can also try it.
