'Palak' or Spinach is a nutritious vegetable full of dietary fibre. It is filled with the goodness of vitamins and tastes great with mild spices and less oil. Protein is essential for building muscles and repairing body tissues. Paneer/cottage cheese is a great source of protein in this dish. Palak Paneer finds a place in all the Indian Restaurant menus across the globe. In fact, it is among the top 5 most loved dishes to have along with Phulkas, Chapatti or Naan. Palak tastes best when it is not overcooked and blended with mild spices. The cottage cheese can be cubed and added just like that in the gravy or can be lightly tossed in oil/ghee and then added. To retain the soft succulent texture of the cottage cheese, always use fresh Paneer. Also you can cube and soak the Paneer in warm water for 15-20 minutes before you add them in the palak gravy.
