Palak Paneer




We took the children to Tulsi one time, a Michelin-rated Indian restaurant here.  Both my husband and I really like Indian food and had been wanting to try that place for a while.  At first, I was not sure if the children would like the food.  It turned out that  I need not have worried.  Both of them enjoyed what we’d ordered.  Granted, we made sure that we didn’t order anything too spicy.  Even though some of the dishes were still a bit spicy for their taste, they kept wanting more (but mango lassi saved the day).


One of the dishes we ordered was palak paneer.  It is basically a dish of puréed spinach blended with various spices (cumin, coriander, turmeric, etc.) and cooked with paneer, a type of cheese common in South Asia.  We all loved it, but most especially Josh. 


I could see us having palak paneer on a regular basis at home and decided to try making it.  Online searches took me to this recipe, which I’d modified a bit (more than doubling all the spices and using paneer instead of ricotta cheese).  It is such a simple recipe, so easy to make, and Josh and I scarf it down every time –no leftovers!

That looks yummy... I love ethnic food, and Indian is one of my favorites. It's always fun to go to a restaurant, find a new favorite, and recreate it at home.
