The combination of Palak with veggies or meat is really amazing and with panner it is really mind blowing. I learnt this recipe from a Pakistani cooking channel and from the first attempt it never went wrong and it is really a rich and yummy recipe with simple ingredients and worth trying . It is an apt dish for parties to serve with soft chappatis , butter naans or pulkas and sure to get a compliment .
Palak Leaves : 1/2 Kg
Soya Leaves : 2 table spoon
Panner cubes : 300 Grams ( shallow fry this in oil till it slightly changes the colour and dont burnt it )
Onion: One big onion chopped fine
Milk : One cup
Ginger Garlic Paste : 2 teaspoons
Black Pepper Powder : 1 and 1/2 teaspoon
Butter : 3 tablespoons
Fresh Cream - 3 tablespoons
1. Blanch the cleaned palak leaves in hot water for 2 minutes with a pinch of salt to retain colour and after two minutes wash it again with cold water and keep aside.
2.Now take a kadai and pour one cup milk and add the blanched palak leaves and washed soya leaves 2 teaspoon in the milk and cook for 5 minutes, cool and then grid it to a course paste along with the milk in the kadai( make sure you dont grind this to a very fine paste).
