I am sure everyone loves Palak Paneer. My kids love it too. This dish is a must at my place whenever I get fresh Palak . I wanted to try a different combo this time and it was a hit. The colour and nutrition was retained without too much masala and compromise on taste.
Recipe for Baby Potato Palak Paneer:
10-12 Baby Potatoes boiled and peeled
10 -12 Paneer cubes(Medium Sized)
A bunch of fresh Palak
1 Onion finely Chopped
¼ Tsp Turmeric/Haldi
1 Tsp Cumin / Jeera
1 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 Tsp Garam Masala
Salt to Taste
1 Inch Ginger finely Chopped
8 Garlic Pods finely Chopped
2 Tbsp of Fresh Cream( I have used Amul cream here)
1 Green Chilli
2 Tsp Oil
Wash Palak leaves and divide into 2 parts. One Part is to be chopped. Blend the other half along with a green chilli to a smooth paste.
Heat oil in a wok. Add Turmeric/ Haldi, Chilli powder and Cumin/Jeera and Saute for few seconds. Add Chopped Ginger ,Garlic and chopped onion and saute till the onions turn slightly brown. Add the boiled baby Potatoes and roast till they turn golden brown. Once the Potatoes are done add Paneer cubes and mix well. Add Garam masala and salt .Saute for a minute. Add the chopped Palak leaves and Palak chilli paste. Close the lid and let it simmer on low flame for 10 mins.
Once done, switch off the flame. Add the fresh cream and serve hot with Rotis or Phulkas.
