Spinach, combined with a rich masala paste of coconut, poppy seeds and aromatic spices like fennel, transforms into a mouth-watering sauce that goes perfectly well with succulent paneer cubes. Remember to mix the sautéed paste, spinach puree and curds well to ensure that your sauce is of the best consistency. It is also important to cook them for more or less the same time mentioned in the recipe to make sure the flavour, aroma and appearance of the Paneer in Spinach Sauce are perfect.

paneer and spinach an awesome combination loved by all (im sure). i love spinach in any form...this ones my fav coz it is simple yet very delicious and taste best with hot naan or even with phulkas. USP of the recipe is the ground paste, an amazing combination of ingredients never thought before...but believe me the flavour blend so well with spinach and paneer. when i feel bored to make low fat paneer i add tofu or boiled soya nuggets.
