This recipe, crafted with canned spinach, offers a convenient and flavourful alternative to traditional methods, making it ideal for even novice cooks.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15 ounces) frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 pound paneer, cut into 1-inch cubes

Instructions

  1. Preparing the Tadka:
    Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle for a few seconds until fragrant. Add the onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Adding the Aromatics:
    Stir in the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute until fragrant. Add the turmeric powder, coriander powder, chili powder, garam masala, and salt, and cook for another minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  3. Combining with the Spinach:
    Add the thawed and drained spinach to the pan and mix well. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the spinach is heated through and the mixture has thickened slightly.
  4. Incorporating the Paneer:
    Gently fold in the paneer cubes, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the spinach mixture.
  5. Adding Freshness and Creaminess:
    Stir in the chopped cilantro and heavy cream. Adjust seasonings to taste if necessary.
  6. Serving with Flair:
    Serve the Palak Paneer hot over steamed rice or roti, garnished with additional cilantro if desired. Enjoy the symphony of flavours and textures that make this dish a culinary masterpiece.

Tips

  • For a richer flavour, use homemade paneer, which is available in many Indian grocery stores.
  • If you prefer a spicier dish, add more chili powder to taste.
  • Garnish the Palak Paneer with a dollop of yogurt or sev (crispy noodle strands) for an extra touch of indulgence.
