Lazeez Palak is a healthy recipe with spinach combined other vegetables. Here I have used mushrooms, baby corn, asparagus, carrot & paneer. Many other veggies like cauliflower, french beans, tomatoes, capsicum etc can be used. It is the best way to eat veggies & palak.
A bunch of Spinach leaves
50 gms paneer.
4-5 chopped garlic cloves
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds (jeera)
1/2 inch chopped ginger
1 chopped chilly (optional)
1/2 tsp red chilly powder
1 onion chopped
2-3 baby corns
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp garam masala
Pinch of black pepper
Blanch palak leaves in hot water for one minute & then wash under running water. Grind it to paste & keep aside.
Heat some oil in pan. Add chopped garlic to it & saute.Then mix the palak puree. Add some salt to it. Turn off the heat once it comes to boil.
In another pan heat oil. Add jeera, chopped onions & saute it till it becomes translucent.Then add chopped ginger & chilly. Then mix all other veggies to it. Other veggies except mushrooms can be blanched for 2 minutes in boiling water.
Add salt, garam masala & mix well. Saute paneer separately.Sprinkle pinch of black pepper on it.
In the serving dish, put the cooked palak puree & then the other veggies & then top it with sauteed paneer.
Lazeez palak is ready. Can be served with rotis or steamed rice.
