Palak Paneer

The traditional Palak paneer is smooth green spinach sauce with fried cheese cubes in it.   In this recipe the main ingredients are the same, but made with slight variation.  I pack this for my kids lunch. I roll the palak paneer in a roti, like a wrap and seal the ends with egg wash, toast it on a pan on either sides of the wrap and cut in circles.  My kids enjoy it so much for its cheesy flavour.  Its a good way to get the kids to eat spinach.

Palak paneer

Palak - 2 cups washed and finely chopped
Paneer - 1/2 cup  crumbled
Onions -  1 finely chopped
Garlic - 1 tsp minced
Jeera - 1/4 tsp
Dry red chillies - 1 chopped, adjust accordingly

Take a pan pour oil  and saute onions, dry red chillies, garlic and jeera. Fry until onions are translucent. Add  crumbled paneer and saute for a min or two. Add chopped spinach , mix it and let it cook.  Add salt, Allow the water to evoporate and make it totally dry. Serve with roti or rice.
