Palak Paneer

Spinach – blanch it in a little boiling water for 2 minutes and blend it in the blender till it forms a smooth paste.
Whole garam masala - cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bayleaf
Grated onion
Grated tomaro
Green chillies
Cold Milk – 1 tbsp (this gives a smooth cream like consistency to the gravy)
Lightly Fried paneer pieces

Heat oil and add the whole garam masala. Then add grated garlic. After a few seconds, add grated onion cook till light brown. Then add the grated tomato and ginger. When the paste starts releasing oil, add salt, sugar and chopped green chillies. Take the pan away from heat and add one tablespoon of cold milk stirring continuously. Put it back on heat and then add the blended palak and fried paneer and cook for 5 minutes. After switching off the heat, add a little butter and serve hot.
