When we were kids, whenever my parents went out to an adults only party, my mother used to ask us what we wanted for dinner at home. 99% of the time, our choice was pooris and shahi paneer. My mother was always nice enough to oblige. Here is the recipe. It is quite rich and hence a nice treat.
Karahi paneer is a famous dish of northern India. The place of origin is Punjab. I learnt to make this dish from my mother, who is a very good cook. After i got married i made this dish for my husband as in my first cooking session. That was quite a crucial moment for me: preparing first time food after marriage is a significant task. But thanks to my mother and her special cooking skills, i made a sumptuous and lasting impression.
Palak Paneer is a recipe of UP and very popular in UP, Pujab and many parts of India. There is one thing in my recipe which makes it special. I add some heavy cream at the end and this adds a rich creamy taste to this recipe. Palak Paneer goes well with roti and naan.
