Notes :- Things to keep in mind while making Palak Paneer Recipe

If you pay attention to eat less calories then you will boil the gravy by putting the paneer in the gravy instead of frying it raw and do not use cream. It becomes tight like rubber and then the test is not good.

To keep the paneer soft even after frying, you leave the paneer in hot water for 10 minutes, then the paneer will remain soft, it will not be tight. Putting spinach in cold ice water does not change the color of spinach, and if you want, you can boil spinach in normal cold water too.

Instead of whistling the spinach in the cooker, you can boil 4 to 5 cups of water in the pan and add spinach to it. Do not boil the spinach too much. You can add more or less water according to the consistency of the gravy in Palak Paneer Sabzi.
