What is Palak Paneer ?

Palak Paneer, in Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, and other Indian languages, is the name of a vegetarian meal that combines paneer with a thick paste made from puréed spinach.

In restaurants, the names palak paneer and saag paneer are occasionally used interchangeably. Saag paneer, on the other hand, differs from conventional palak paneer in that it includes other green leafy vegetables, such as mustard greens, while palak paneer just comprises spinach. Palak paneer is a common specialty in dhaba restaurants.
