Add oil/butter or ghee to a pan as per your preference. I’m using oil.
To this add cumin seeds and a few dry red chillies.
Once these get lightly toasted, add in some turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and cumin powder.
Give it all a nice mix for a few seconds so that they get lightly toasted in oil. Make sure not to burn them.
Now, add the palak puree. Add in some water to adjust the consistency. Give it all a nice mix. Add in required salt to your taste.
In a minute or 2 it starts to boil. Add in some powdered garam masala. Give it a mix.
Add in the paneer cubes. Alternatively, you can also lightly shallow fry paneer in a little oil until light golden brown and then add.
Gently fold in the gravy to cover the paneer and turn off the heat.
At this stage, you can optionally add some cream or butter.
Palak paneer curry is ready to be served with roti, naan, paratha or jeera rice.
