Tips

How to ensure Palak Paneer is a lovely green in colour as in a restaurant? Drop Spinach Leaves in boiling water, cook for 3 minutes and then put them immediately into cold water. Then the Leaves won’t cook any further and will stay green. Or the Spinach Leaves change into a dark green colour.

Paneer:

It is always best to use homemade Paneer. But, in case, you buy it in the market, cut it and soak it in hot water for 10 minutes so that the Paneer turns soft. Then it will absorb the flavours nicely.

Some tips to enhance taste:

• Onions should be fried well.

• Use Kasuri Methi (dried Fenugreek leaves) without fail. Then you get a nice flavour.

• If you want a restaurant-style, then use Fresh Cream. Those who do not have Fresh Cream can use Milk Cream, mix it well, cook the Curry for a while and then remove it from the fire. If you use Fresh Cream, you could straight away remove the Curry from fire.
