Palak by chance

Punjabi cuisine coupled with just about any kind of spinach may turn your mental season clock to winter but guess what? It’s totally legit to savor some palak paneer and hot parathas even in peak summer. Now, a dhaba-style palak paneer may contradict this school of thought because lets be real, no one likes to eat at a dhaba when the Sun is smiling down at us.

But how about we get that dhaba dish, crank it up to a fancier restaurant version and make it right in our own kitchen? Excited much? Follow this recipe and whip up a delicious kadhai of palak paneer at home!
