Palak Paneer -- How to make Palak Paneer

Palak Paneer
As a South Indian I like some of North Indian dishes, among them palak paneer is one. I have made paneer last week, we cannot store it for more than two days. So to make the best use of it I made this dish.  It is made with paneer cooked with palak or spinach puree and added condiments. Serve it with roti, naan and also with jeera rice.
