Palak paneer (pronounced [paːlək pəniːɾ]) is a vegetarian dish originating from the Indian subcontinent,[1] consisting of paneer (Indian cheese) in a thick paste made from puréed spinach and seasoned with ginger, garlic, garam masala, and other spices.[2]

Palak paneer may be called green paneer in some restaurants in the United States and Canada. That dish may contain mustard greens or other green leafy vegetables or green vegetables[3]. Dhaba restaurants often specialize in palak paneer. It can also be found as a canned food as well in many large stores such as Walmart.

It can be served as soup as well and is popular during winter.[citation needed]

Serving[edit]

Palak paneer is served hot with a side such as roti, naan, paranthas, makki di roti, or boiled rice. It can also be served with onions on the side for a more traditional approach.
