I love spinach, especially when it is braised just by itself.
Then when I came across a recipe where paneer was added to it, I just had to try it out and I loved it.
I doubt I will ever eat plain braised spinach anymore. I am not sure how well my dad will take it though, because when I told him that there was paneer in it, he didn’t want to believe me, until he dished up and had a taste and he tasted paneer, he didn’t want to eat anymore.
Although this dish has a lot of ingredients, it is actually really simple to make and very very quick.
