Pretty good if only i didn't add as much salt as it says. But i added more tomato to reduce the saltiness.

This is a great fresh tasting and quick palak paneer. The recipe calls for too much salt, though! I think they meant teaspoons and wrote tablespoons. I keep paneer around to go in the micro...

One of my favourite things to eat!

This recipe doesn't have as much spinach as the local E. Indian restaurants put in their dishes, but it was still good.
