  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 6 cloves garlic chopped, optional
  • 2-3 bunches Spring onions chopped
  • 3-4 bunches Palak/spinach chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried dill
  • 2 tsp dhania/coriander seeds powder
  • 1/2 cup Dhania/ Coriander Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp kali mirch/pepper powder
  • Salt to Taste
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 cups paneer marinated in garlic and onion optional


  • In a large kadhai/wok heat the oil and sauté the garlic until golden brown.
  • Add the onions and sauté until tender.
  • Add the spinach and cook on medium heat.
  • Stir regularly cook till the spinach settles down and the liquid boils.
  • Add the dill, coriander leaves and powder, pepper powder.
  • Stir well and reduce the heat so that the liquid bubbles gently.
  • Cook for another 10 more minutes until the liquid is absorbed and the spinach very tender.
  • At this stage I added the paneer that I had kept marinated in garlic and onion.
  • Stir well and cook stirring occasionally.
  • Switch off the gas and add the lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Serve with rice or naan. Personally I preferred it with this Afghan challow.
