Combining all the knowledge we found in a few books and websites, we came up with the following recipe for Palak Paneer.


----Part A----
1/4 lb paneer cubed
1/2 onion

2 cloves garlic
dash salt

1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp sugar
1 tbps oil

----Part B-----
1.5 lbs frozen spinach

sm piece ginger
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp chilies
1/2 onion
1 tomato

1. Defrost spinach.
2. Chop up onion and tomato.
3. Put all of the Part B items in a pot with a little bit of water and bring to a boil for 8- 10 minutes.
4. Let it cool then grind it all into a paste with the food processor.
5. Finely chop the onion and garlic for part A.
6. Heat oil and fry onion until translucent.
7. Add garlic then fry briefly.
8. Add the rest of the spice powder and stir.
9. Stir in the Part B and let it cook for a few minutes.
10. Add paneer and cook for 2 more minutes.

Description: This version was not as creamy as we had hoped, but otherwise was a hit!

Suggestions: A friend recommended adding cream. In addition, we found that this made the most amazing omelet the next day so be sure to make some extra.
