Palak paneer makes a healthy weeknight meal and is ready in 15 minutes with this easy Instant Pot recipe. I love this one-pot recipe to cook the spinach and then use an immersion blender to puree the sauce making cleanup super easy. Serve with steamed rice for a gluten-free meal or with hot parathas for a wholesome vegetarian meal!

  • 250 gram paneer
  • 1kg palak
  • 2 cup of water
  • Half tbsp jeera
  • Half tbsp black pepper
  • Salt as per taste
  • 3 medium-size onion
  • 2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 tbsp cream
Cooking Instructions
  1. 1st boiled palak once the palak changes colour slightly, drain off the blanched palak.
  2. Transfer the blanched palak into ice-cold water. This helps to retain the bright green colour of palak.
  3. Once the palak has cooled completely, transfer to a blender.
  4. Blend to smooth paste without adding any water. Keep it aside.
  5. Now in a large kadai heat 2 tsp ghee
  6. Add jeera and saute
  7. Now add onion paste
  8. Saute till it turns golden brown.
  9. Now add palak paste
  10. 1/4 cup water
  11. Salt and black pepper
  12. Mix well adjusting consistency as required.
  13. Add paneer and mix well
  14. Simmer for 5 minutes or till paneer absorbs the flavour.
  15. Now add cream and mix well
  16. Turn of the flame

Ready for serve
