Now onto the recipe!
I begin the recipe by blanching palak/spinach in hot water. Later tossed in a blender to make a puree. To save some time – you can use frozen spinach instead of the fresh one.
Saute and cook everything together until oil starts to separate. Do not overcook spinach/palak, as it may result in the change of color which may not look appetizing at all.
Mix in grilled paneer, adjust spices and take it off the flame. Just before serving, pour in the final tempering. As per taste, add cream to the final dish.
Add smoky flavor to No onion no garlic Palak Paneer!
If you would like to give this dish a smoky effect, then follow the step by step dhungar method below.
A piece of burning charcoal is placed in a bowl, and ghee is poured on top of hot charcoal to create smoke.
The bowl is then placed over palak paneer and is covered so that the smoky flavor is trapped and soaked up by the dish. The result is an intensely flavored scrumptious palak paneer!
