Palak Paneer


4 huge handfuls of fresh spinach (as we used in class)
whole milk, (About ¼ cup)
2 large onion
6 garlic cloves
Olive oil
1 tsp. crushed coriander
1/2 tsp. white pepper (even that is strong)
Dash each of ground cumin, garam masala
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
About 200g queso fresco or queso tierno

In a food processor, puree the onion, ginger and garlic. Heat in a non-stick saucepan the onion mixture with about 2 TBSP. of ghee and 3-4 TBSP. of olive oil. Cook the mixture until soft, then add all the spices. Cook for about 10 minutes, to develop the flavors, over medium-low heat. Add the fresh spinach and cook until just wilted. Place the spinach and onion mixture in a blender and blend with a little whole milk, until you have a thick puree consistency, as demonstrated in class. Slice the fresh cheese into cubes. Pour the spinach puree into the pan, and heat through with the cheese cubes a few more minutes. Taste to adjust seasonings, and when ready to serve, heat a few Tortillas La Malinche for dipping into the Palak Paneer. Eat immediately.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your blog.

    It appears like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this
    is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my
    internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Thank you
