Palak Paneer

 

I make this almost every other week and finally took pictures to write up the recipe. It is real easy to make, very common and kid friendly. One of the times I made it, I happened to add Ajwain and liked it, so now its become part of the ingredients. Ajwain has a lot of health benefits including the aid of digestion.

 

What you’ll need:

  • Olive Oil – 3 to 4 tbsp
  • Ajwain or Carom Seeds – 1 tbsp (optional)
  • Green Chilies – 2 to 3 or to taste
  • Garlic – 4 cloves
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece roughly chopped
  • Red Onion – 1/2 of a large or 1 small, roughly chopped
  • Organic Baby Spinach – 1 box full (16 oz)
  • Salt to taste
  • Paneer – 7 oz or 1/2 block, cut to pieces
