Tips to make the best palak paneer sabzi:

  • Soak the paneer cubes with the gravy in warm water for 10-15 minutes, so they are smooth when fried.
  • The paneer cubes can be deep-fried or shallow in little oil until browned and then added to the gravy for a change.
  • Soak it in hot water for 15 minutes, if the paneer is rough. It’s getting soft again.
  • Replace paneer with tofu if you want to make a vegan edition. Instead of standard cream using cashew cream or some other vegan cream.
  • In the end, apply fresh cream to make the version creamier and richer.
