Palak paneer (Hindi: पालक पनीर), is a dish of North Indian origin consisting of spinach and paneer (cottage cheese) in a thick, curry sauce based on puréed spinach, with garlic and garam masala. It is a popular vegetarian dish.

Palak paneer is one type of saag, which can also be made with mustard leaves. Palak paneer may be somewhat more watery than saag paneer.


This dish is served hot with a tandoor selection, like roti, naan or boiled rice.
