Homestyle Palak Paneer  

Hey everyone! Homestyle palak paneer is a super delicious Indian dish that is so creamy, and if you're looking for a vegetarian indulgence tonight then this is the recipe for you!

This is a traditional Punjabi dish and goes really well with roti or makki di roti/corn roti. This version uses minimal spices and really shows off the fresh ingredients which is the paneer and the spinach. I have to say that this dish was the only way my family could get me to eat spinach as a kid! The gravy is just so rich, creamy and tastes incredible! Full of amazing flavours and the spinach alone gives it that wonderful colour. The paneer absorbs all of those wonderful flavours perfectly.

So let's not wait any longer and get started making this lush palak paneer recipe for you and your family tonight! Serve it with your favourite bread or some rice and get ready to enjoy!
