This dish has been a big hit with customers to date and has surprised many who’d never tasted paneer before. In India this dish is called Palak Paneer and is traditionally very garlicky with a touch of sweetness coming through from the onion. The silky texture of the paneer makes for an interesting, creamy foil for the spicy spinach curry sauce. One of the most popular vegetarian dishes served in British Indian restaurants, this is definitely a comforting dish.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Fry the paneer

    Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large non-stick pan over high heat. When hot, fry the paneer, turning the cubes to brown each side (~ 5 mins). Then remove from the pan and keep aside.

  • 2.

    Start the sauce

    Heat a little oil in the same pan over medium-high heat and fry the onion for 3 mins.

    Add the GARLIC PASTE and stir quickly. 

    Add the tomatoes and the KORMA PASTE and turn up the heat to help the tomatoes break down. 

    Reduce the heat to a simmer then stir in the cream, letting it cook for 5 mins.

  • 3.

    Add the spinach

    Add the spinach leaves and stir until the leaves have fully wilted into the curry.

    Return the paneer to the pan and add half the NIGELLA SEED BLEND. Let it simmer for 3 mins.

  • 4.


    Serve the curry and sprinkle the rest of the NIGELLA SEED BLEND on top. Serve the yoghurt and chapati bread on the side (if using).

Best thing ever

jane - Feb 15, 2019

This is my absolute favourite I could eat this every night. I cook rice for my husband to go with it but it plenty for me on it’s own

nicola - Feb 15, 2019

used natural yoghurt to make a little healthier and also haollumi which was also recommened as an alternative to Paneer.. it was by far my favourite dish so far

Victoria - Feb 14, 2019

Had reservations about this because it’s not what we’d usually have, but it was delicious!

Remarkably tasty. Didn't think I would like a creamy cheese curry, but it was really quite a lovely change from the usual chicken and not sickly. Would get again.

Loved it, really tasty and light

Lisa - Feb 04, 2019

This is a dish I was unsure about as bith my husband and son tried a paneer dish dining out recently they did not enjoy. This was a hit my 7 year old son said it was the best dish he had tasted. The texture if the paneer was perfect as were the flavours. Another recipe I shall order again.

Lisa - Feb 04, 2019

Easy and delicious. We all really enjoyed. Topped with a few fresh chillis for an extra kick

Julie - Feb 02, 2019

Simply delicious.

Julie - Feb 02, 2019

Simply delicious!

Roxanne - Feb 02, 2019


Sheila - Feb 01, 2019

Very filling. Cooked as the recipe said but 50% was left. Would be nice to know if these recipes freeze well after cooking

Katie - Feb 01, 2019

Guilt free comfort food! Definitely needs the chapatis but maybe not the yoghurt

Jane - Jan 31, 2019

Delicious, if a bit rich. I peeled the tomatoes and used halloumi which I dry fried until golden. Also added a fresh chilli for a bit of heat.

Emma - Jan 31, 2019

My favourite simply cook meal

Claire - Jan 30, 2019

Please can I have this in my next box. Please

Erin - Jan 30, 2019

Delicious! So flavoursome! I added extra tomatoes and soy single cream!

Julie - Jan 30, 2019

Absolutely delicious - first time I’d ever cooked with paneer and it came out great!

Emma - Jan 30, 2019

Sorry not for me

Tracy - Jan 30, 2019

Given the disappointing flavour, this did not feel good value for money. A shop bought paste would be just as tasty and significantly cheaper.

Jacqueline - Jan 30, 2019


Brian - Jan 28, 2019

Added the potatoes to this when cooking the onions, very tasty but could have done with more liquid in the curry as it became thickish.

Tanya - Jan 28, 2019


Susan - Jan 28, 2019

Never had paneer before, it's quite like haloumi in this dish. A little too much spinach in this one for me. I'll put less in the next time :)

Sara - Jan 28, 2019

Sooo good definitely going to be trying my own version of this!!

Lukas - Jan 28, 2019

To heavy, reduce the cream

Sue - Jan 27, 2019


Dawn - Jan 27, 2019

Really good. I used some tinned tomatoes without all of the juice and it was just as good .

Elena - Jan 26, 2019

Lovely ingredients ?? I cooked it and this was amazing! I eating Indian food for the first time and I’m in love
