Palak paneer gravy quick

Lot of people like one pot recipes. Making curry in one pot is next to impossible. Specially spinach/ saag/ palak gravy. You make onion and tomato gravy in blender. Boil palak separately and crush it. This adds up to lot of vessels and pots to wash.

This is a very quick and one pot recipe. I learnt this from a friend was delighted to find out how quick it is and saves so much washing up later on. The taste is even better and color of spinach turned out fabulously green.

Serves: 4
Spinach/ Palak: 300gms
Onion: 1 large
Tomato: 2-3 large
Ginger: 1 inch
Garlic: 3-4 cloves
Oil: 1 table spoon
Cumin seeds: 1 tea spoon

Peel onions, garlic and ginger. Rough chop it.

Wash tomatoes and palak leaves nicely.

Rough chop tomatoes.

Heat the pan, add oil. Once the oil is hot add cumin seeds and let it splutter. Add garlic and ginger pieces. Let it cook for 1 minutes and add onions.

Stir onions until they are translucent.

Add tomatoes and cook until they are soft.
Now add palak leaves and add half cup of water and cover the lid and let it cook on low flame for 4-5 minutes. Cook until palak leaves get tender.

Take the lid off and using hand blender make a smooth paste.

Add more water if required.
Now flavour the curry the way you want by adding salt and different spices. Add paneer, chole and corn etc.
