Your recipes have helped me perfect my techniques and make better food for my fianc andmyself. Most palak paneer recipes would tell you to use frozen spinach. Blanching the spinach is so, somuch better. As much as I love my local Indian restaurant, being able to make my own curries at home iswonderful. Thanks for the awesome recipes!Replydassana September 4, 2013 20thanks laurenReplyNandita September 23, 2013 21Came out excellent! Thanks again!Replydassana September 23, 2013 22thanks nandita for giving the feedbackReplyNandita September 25, 2013 23Hi Dassana,I have 2 questions;When I made this dish, the tomatoes i used were ripe, but firm, so they do not blend and mashed up reallywell, I finally let the onion-tomato mixture cool a little and put it in the blender. Do you face the sameproblem or have any suggestions regarding the same?Also, I make Paneer at home just before making the curry, and have realised that the Paneer is super softand nice when the curry (any curry) is warm / hot; however, when the dish cools down the paneerhardens. Is it supposed to happen with paneer? Or is it happening because i over cooking it?Thanks so much!Replydassana September 26, 2013 24hi nandita1: i never have any issue with tomatoes when making an onion-tomato based gravy. in india we gettomatoes which blend very well and become mushy and soft when cooking. i suggest you to add apinch or two of salt when cooking tomatoes. it helps them to cook faster and also softens them.actually it depends upon the water content in the tomatoes. so when sauting, you can sprinkle somewater and saute. this will also soften the tomatoes.2: with paneer, i have never faced this issue. even after the curry or sabzi cools down, the paneercubes are still soft. i wonder what is causing this issue with the paneer. a suggestion would be to justcook the paneer for a minute after you add them. then you can see whether they harden when youdo this way.Follow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurantbhindi masala howt26palak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/9 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44Replyparul September 30, 2013 25Also want to ask uwhy didnt u use onion paste and tomato puree inspite of chopped.does it tastesdifferent??Replydassana October 4, 2013 26the taste will be little different with onion paste and tomato puree. you can try the palak paneer thisway too.ReplyNandita October 2, 2013 27Hi Dassana, I am unable to use the reply link; nothing happens when i click on it, hence this new post.Thanks for both the suggestions, i will try them out soon for sure!

What I made doesnt really taste like therestaurant paneer and I omitted some ingredients that I didnt have on hand. Could you please tell me whatingredients were essential to make this restaurant style? I omitted using:1 bay leaf/tej patta1 or 2 tbsp cream2 tbsp oil or ghee or unsalted butter1 tsp kasuri methi leaves/dry fenugreek leaves (optional)I thought that the cream and butter were for consistency more than taste and I didnt have a bay leaf. Ididnt have kasuri methi either and it says optional so I didnt use it. Pls let me know what was an essentialingredient that altered the taste because Id very much like to make this again. Thank you for sharing!!Replydassana November 14, 2013 44hi aishwarya,1: palak is somewhat bland and has a typical taste. adding bay leaf/tej patta brings some flavor andaroma in the otherwise bland palak puree. so better not to skip it. if tej patta is not there, then addsome 2-3 cloves or 1/2 inch cinnamon.2: its also important to add cream as it balances the taste of the spinach and brings about a subtlesweetness in the dish. so i would not suggest to skip it either. you can also use malai. just whip it welland then add it to the palak paneer. if you are not adding cream, then 1 tbsp of maize flour (makkika atta) or gram flour (besan) can be added. this will thicken the gravy as well as bring a lightsweetness in the dish.3: some fat should be there. otherwise it will taste like a soup made without butter or oil.4: kasuri methi is not necessary. just to get the aroma in the dish.so next time when you make, dont skip on the tej patta and cream. you can substitute with theingredients that i have mentioned. they wont give you a restaurant like taste, but the palak paneerwill be good. also use oil or butter while making the palak paneer.Replyashish November 15, 2013 45Follow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurantbhindi masala howt26palak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/12 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44Replydassana November 17, 2013 46thanks ashishReplyashish November 15, 2013 47bohot achi hain aapki recipe mamReplyhm November 26, 2013 48will this work if i dont have a blender?Replydassana November 26, 2013 49you will have to boil the spinach leaves very well. dont add the stems. chop the leaves and cookthem till they are softened completely. then using a a slightly medium to large holed strainer mashthe leaves with a spoon or fork. you can also just mash with your fingers and no need to strain if thepuree does not have any fibrous parts. the puree you get you can use that. but its too cumbersome tocook this way.ReplyIndian CuisineBengaliGoanGujaratHyderabadIndian Street FoodIndo ChineseKeralaKonkanMaharashtraNorth IndianPunjabiSouth IndianFollow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurantbhindi masala howt26palak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/13 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44CategoriesThe Indian PlatterBeveragesBreakfastDals LentilsDessertsDry Vegetable RecipesIndian Breads & ParathasPickles, Chutneys & DipsRice RecipesStarters & SnacksVegan Sweets & DessertsVegetarian CurriesBy: ifood.tvFollow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurantbhindi masala howt26palak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/14 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44 Breads & CakesBread RecipesEggless CakesFollow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurantbhindi masala howt26palak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/15 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44Quick & Easy15 Minute Recipes30 Minutes RecipesBachelor RecipesRecipes For Kids Recipe Palak PaneerFollow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurantbhindi masala howt26palak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/16 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44More RecipesCulinary terms & GlossaryFasting RecipesFestival RecipesGluten FreeHow to Make?No Onion No GarlicVegan RecipesWorld RecipesFind us on FacebookVeg Recipes ofIndiaLike28,708 people like Veg Recipes ofIndia.Facebook social pluginNameEmailCopyright Veg Recipes of India 20092013Follow Us!Popular Postspaneer butter masalapalak paneer recipe,veg biryani hyderabchole recipe howtoidli recipe how toaloo paratha recipe-Recipe Indexdal tadka, how tomaksouth indian upmarecdal fry restaurant26bhindi masala howtpalak paneer recipe, how to make palak paneer recipe | paneer recipes http://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/palak-paneer/17 of 17 29-11-2013 17:44
