Palak- Paneer Curry (Spinach- Paneer Curry)

Palak  Paneer is one of the main dish at my household, which I make every 3rd or 4th day. The reason behind making Palak Paneer so frequently is, to feed my kiddo Palak as much as possible. he do not like Palak Parantha, Alu palak, or any other variations of Palak (spinach)... Which left me with not much choice... I do create variations in making Palak Paneer. But, only this yummy process is approved by her.... I am glad to say, now I really do not have to struggle to feed my family Spinach...



Spinach, which is high in vitamins, minerals, iron, calcium and many other minerals, is very important to be eaten on regular basis.. But, our kids do not understand this... So, try this delicious recipe, and make your kids fall in love with Palak...
