  1. Melt ghee in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in garlic and cumin seed; cook until the garlic softens, about 3 minutes. Add tomato paste, ginger, 1 teaspoon garam masala, salt, onion, and water. Increase heat to medium, and stir until the tomato paste dissolves. Simmer slowly for 1 hour, adding water as needed to maintain a sauce-like consistency.
  2. Stir in spinach and cook until hot, about 5 minutes. Add paneer, and allow to cook an additional 5 minutes, or until hot. Pour into a serving dish and sprinkle with cilantro and remaining garam masala.

This gave great basic form to the palak dish. I followed other reviewers suggestions regarding ratio of tomatoes and spinach and made these changes: used canned chopped tomatoes (15 oz.), a who...

Made the dish as directed, but found it a little bland. Something was missing but I'm not quite sure what it was... less tomato? add some cream? more spices? I doubt I'll make it again, it just ...

I completely agreed with bmotzbmotz. This was tasty but didn't taste (or look) like any Palak Paneer I've ever gotten before. I couldn't find paneer so I used ricotta. This could be a factor so ...

This was awesome. I made it as listed, except I only added 1/2 lb. paneer, as that was all I had. I was great on basmati rice. Yum!!
