Palak Paneer a favorite North Indian recipe, this mildly flavored dish is super healthy too. Cubes of paneer cheese (similar to cottage cheese but look more like tofu) are pan-fried and then simmered in a spinach-based gravy. Flavored with fenugreek leaves, onion, garlic, tomato, and several Indian spices, palak paneer is a nutritious meal that will also satisfy the taste buds.
If you’re craving comfort in the form of an Indian curry, this vegan palak tofu paneer is the recipe for you! It has a beautiful vibrantly green (like, you know this stuff is going to be good for you), creamy, and super flavorful spinach gravy base and crispy-edged, soft inside, crumbly tofu, which stands in for the soft farmers cheese that is paneer.
It’s perfect when served with fragrant basmati rice and scooped up with some Indian flatbread. This curry is easy to make and by Indian standards comes together quickly. The hardest part is probably washing all the sandy dirt out of the spinach (which is not that hard!).
