Palak Paneer is a traditional North Indian delicacy and an integral part of the Punjabi cuisine. It is also one of the favorite dishes to many especially the kids coz the influence of Popeye the Sailor gulping cans of Spinach and acquiring tonnes of super energy. It’s a nice way of feeding nutritious dishes to kids who do not eat a properly balanced diet.
Palak Paneer cutlet is an Indian Snack made of spinach and paneer (a non melting Indian cheese)  with Indian spices. It’s a very popular vegetarian delicacy. The paneer snack looks very appetizing due to the combination of its natural green and white colors of the spinach and paneer.
This recipe is mildly flavored and not a very spicy appetizer. Normally in the state of Punjab, Palak paneer is a specialty dish in most of the dhabas. Palak paneer is served with hot Indian flat bread accompanied with a glass of Lassi.
Anyways Palak paneer is truly a guilt-free, satisfying well balanced delicious dish.
Spinach is a versatile vegetable. Spinach works well when combined with most or any type of cuisine whether you’re adding it to dal, pasta, stir-frys, curries, noodles, quesadillas, pizza… etc, the culinary possibilities are virtually endless.
Spinach is very healthy, nutritious and full of antioxidants. It’s also high in iron, vitamins A & C, and even calcium. Preparing the Palak paneer is quite very simple. In a large pot of boiling water, blanch the spinach leaves for just a minute or two. Remove, drain well in a colander and run under cold water. This will stop the cooking process and also set their lovely green color.
Do not cover the vessel while boiling the spinach or else you will lose the fresh green color of spinach.
Palak Paneer (gravy) has always been a favorite among all the paneer lovers, not only for the great taste it holds but also for the nutritional components present in it. Palak Paneer is an entirely “Green” dish, as it contains a whole lot of Palak (green leafy vegetable) which is highly recommended for a good health. It then contains the famous “Paneer” which is loved by most people.


Indian cheese (paneer) is a rich supply of calcium. This can help in building strong teeth and bones. Paneer provides the health advantage of protecting against osteoporosis, that is a problem of old age.  Ladies who have accomplished menopause and men above 65 years of age should make it a rule to add it to their diet to obtain 25% of calcium through food.
