This recipe of Palak Paneer is my mom’s recipe. I have prepared this recipe by blanching spinach as it will give nice green color to the recipe. It can be prepared without blanching spinach also. But I will recommend blanching for this particular recipe.

This recipe of Palak Paneer goes perfect with hot chapattis, naan, tandoori rotis and even rice also.
