Wash palak or spinach nicely and chop it. Cook in a open pan for a while and keep it aside to cool down. N^ow chop the onion,tomato and make a paste of it in the blender. Also make paste of palak and keep aside. Cut paneer into cubes and fry in oil till slight brown. Now add sufficient oil to make the palak paneer in the desired pan. First put the ginger garlic paste and saute it. Add the onion-tomato paste and saute again. Add the coriander powder, chilli powder, salt yo taste and stir fry all the masala well. Once the masala starts leaving its sides add the palak to it and mix well. Bring palak to a boil and now you may put the paneer pieces in it. Add garam masala an stir well. There is no need to add water to this since spinach contains water already. Bring to a boil nicely for 4 to 5 mins and take it off from the fleme. Whip the cream and pour it over the palak paneer.
Palak paneer tastes well with Naan, Kulchas, Rotis or even with pullav.
