Gajar/Chukandar/Palak ki Pattiyan aur Paneer Ki Sabzi - गाजर/चुकंदर/पालक की पत्तियां और पनीर की सब्जी (Carrot/Beet/Spinach Leaves and Paneer Curry)

Hello friends,

I am so happy with the way my new vegetable patch is coming along. Of course, I have made a few blunders, which I am sure happen with newbies. Here is a curry that I am presenting made with different green leaves from my own garden. Isn't that great..lol :)

Here is a pic of all the leaves before being cooked. I am sure you can guess which is what, right? There is spinach, beetroot leaves and carrot leaves.

Palak (Spinach) - 1 cup chopped
Paneer (Cottage Cheese) - 1 cup, cut in small cubes
Onion - 1 cup, finely chopped

Lal Mirch (Red Chili) Powder - 1 tsp
Dhaniya (Coriander) Powder - 1 tsp

  • Once the seeds are spluttering, add ginger/garlic and fry for about 30 seconds.
  • Add onion and fry till they become translucent.
  • Add all dry powders including salt and fry for another min.
  • Add all leaves, 1/4 cup water and let it cook till leaves are well done.
  • Add paneer and let it cook for another 2 min. and turn off the heat

Serve it with warm roti/paratha or even rice.

As I have used gajar (carrot) leaves in this recipes, I am sending this to Healing Foods - Carrots event of Suma, started by Siri.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
