You must be wondering why i have kept this funny name for this dish, so its a story behind it .When my daughter refuses to eat palak i use to tell her that "if you want to become strong like pokemon i.e. her favorite cartoon then you have to eat this palak and by saying this she had it but only 2 to 3 spoons!So this is not being done for her good health 🙁 So it was challenge for me to give my daughter "health with taste"so i have tried a different taste for palak paneer and it was a HIT 🙂 The thick creamy gravy is going to be loved by all your family members and now even myself has started eating palak paneer 😉 Palak paneer is a good power pack for growing children as well as adults.Its good for weight loss,eye sight,healthy strong bones,lowers blood pressure and most important boosts immunity.

Jokes a part but its a must try recipe specially for the kids who hate palak ,because it is creamy ,tangy and flavored !So they will never say NO to this.
