A creamy curry with the goodness of palak!I make Palak Paneer atleast once in two weeks. I have it along with rotis. Just love the dish…Palak Paneer is a HIT in my family. Kids generally love this recipe because of the presence of paneer. It is also very easy to make. Palak Paneer is one way of feeding greens to the kids. Sometimes, I substitute paneer with tofu. Palak Tofu also taste good. If you have not tried Palak Paneer before, try it now…You will fall in love with it. Palak Paneer, I just love you…
