PALAK PANEER (cottage cheese) – Indian Dish

For all the Non- Indians in love with Indian food, I wanted to share one of my favorite vegetarian dishes!


  • 900 grams Spinach
  • 200 grams Paneer (cottage cheese)
  • 2-3 Green chilies
  • 8-10 cloves Garlic chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
  • 2-3 tablespoons Fresh cream
  • Salt to taste



  • Wash spinach thoroughly. Blanch in salted boiling water for two minutes
  • Transfer in chilled water. Take out the excess water. Blend into a fine paste along with green chilies
  • Cut the paneer into one inch by one inch by half inch pieces. Heat oil in a pan
  • Add cumin seeds. When they begin to change color, add garlic and sauté for a minute. Add the spinach puree and stir
  • When the gravy comes to a boil, add the paneer and mix well. Stir in lemon juice
  • Add fresh cream
  • Serve hot with rice or naan

I hope you try it!
