Palak Paneer is a household staple in Northern India. It’s one of the most commonly made paneer dishes in Indian homes. Not only is it packed with flavor, but it’s much healthier than other Paneer dishes like Paneer Makhani or Paneer Tikka. Palak Paneer is often confused with Saag Paneer. In Hindi, palak means spinach, while saag means “greens” in which a variety of different greens is used. I like to top my Palak Paneer with a Tadka (fried spices) and a drizzle of heavy cream for an extra layer of flavor.
