Palak paneer (Hindi: पालक पनीर) is a vegetarian North Indian dish consisting of spinach and paneer in a thick sauce made from puréed spinach and seasoned with garlic, garam masala, and other spices.

Palak paneer is one type of saag, which can also be made with spinach 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.

Dhaba restaurants often specialise in palak paneer.
