Tips:

  • Palak is iron rich food. Adding tomato helps for better absorption of iron in body. So while making any palak recipe, add sour veggie like tamarind, tomato etc.
  • While adding kasuri methi, crush it with hands and add in any recipe. Kasuri methi gives nice flavour to the dish.
  • If you cook paneer longer, it becomes chewy and loses its softness. So cook paneer for just about 4-5 minutes.
