Palak paneer (pronounced [paːlək pəniːr]) is a vegetarian dish from the Indian subcontinent,[1] consisting of paneer (Indian cheese) in a thick paste made from puréed spinach and seasoned with garlic, garam masala, and other spices.[2]

Palak paneer may be called saag paneer in some restaurants in the US. That dish may contain mustard greens or other green leafy vegetables or green vegetables. Dhaba restaurants often specialise in palak paneer.


Palak paneer is served hot with a tandoor selection, like roti, naan or boiled rice.
