Palak(spinach)-2 large bunches

Paneer(cottage cheese)cubes-200gm

Onions-1 big cut finely
Tomato-1,cut finely
Salt-to taste
Ginger garlic paste-1/2tsp
Chilli powder-1tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
Garam masala powder-a pinch

Heat water in a pot and immerse the palak leaves and let it boil for 2 mins and strain.Do not close lid as this will make the fresh green colour go dark.

Cool and make a paste using a blender.Do not add water.

In a pan heat 4tbsp oil and fry the paneer cubes until light brown.Immerse the cubes into a bowl of warm salted water.Let it sit.
This makes the paneer soft and lets the salt seep into the paneer.
In the remaining oil in pan,add zeera and fry the onions until brown.
Add ginger garlic paste and fry.Add salt,chilli powder and garam masala and tomato.
Fry well until oil separates.
Add palak paste and fry fr 3 mins.
Add the paneer and fry well.
Serve hot garnished with fresh cream and tomato pieces.

Goes really well with  nan,roti,poori or kulcha.
