  1. What an interesting recipe! I have to try it. Everyone loves spinach and paneer in my house so this will be a hit. BTW, your thali looks awesome!

  2. Just give me some rotis, am ready to clean that bowl of irresistible palak paneer, lipsmacking here already. Been a while i prepared palak paneet at home. And that thali looks astonishing.

  3. Finger licking thali. So pretty and tempting. Adding cheese to any dish will make any kid enjoy the dish. Nice way to prepare spinach and paneer. Something different.

  4. Wow Vaishali , this one is simply awesome..I have not tried both these as a burji..Is this eaten as a side dish for roti? The whole thali is so sinful. I am bookmarking for later!

  5. I love this twist to the classic Palak paneer. Adding cheese on top just makes it awesome….I wish I could grab it from the screen!

  6. That is a very interesting version of palak paneer. I personally love grated paneer over cubed and this dish sounds just perfect with grated cheese.

  7. I make paneer bhurji but never added palak in it ever, will try it again and see how it goes. I am sure it would taste amazing too.
