Cooking with Mom: Palak Paneer

This is one of my FAVOURITE dishes in the world.

I asked the lady at the local Indian store what spices I needed, and she recommended I use the package, as it was the right spice blend.

It says Asloo Palak (potato) but I used paneer (cheese)
In a pan, heat 1/2 cup oil and add 1 med. sliced onion
Cook until golden brown.
Add tsp of garlic paste and tsp of ginger paste (I used fresh) and simmer for 3 mins.
add spice mix and simmer for 3 mins.
Add pkg. of paneer, 1kg spinach, boiled and drained (I use caned with salt) 1/2 cup water.
Cover and simmer for 10 mins.

Add 3/4 cup yoghurt
Remove cover and simmer until liquid evaporates.

This pic. doesn't do it justice, it is SOOOOOO good!
