Palak Paneer (Cottage Cheese in Spinach Sauce)


1 - 10 oz box frozen spinach
1 1/4 cup paneer cubes
1/2 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
2 long green peppers or 2 green chilies
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp haldi (turmeric powder)
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/4 cup half and half
salt to taste

How it's made:

Defrost spinach.
Cook spinach in a sauce pan. Cool and puree with ginger, garlic and chilies.

In a frying pan, heat oil. Add cumin seeds. When they change color, add chopped onions. Cook until translucent. Add spinach puree and salt to taste. Cover and cook for 2-3 mins. Add red chili powder and haldi. Cook for a minute.
Add paneer cubes and garam masala powder. Cover and cook on medium high flame for 3-4 minutes. If the sauce is too thick add 1/4 cup of water ( a little at a time). Adjust seasoning. Add half and half and give one quick boil. Serve hot with puri, roti or rice.

Serves: 3-4
