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).

Really tasty, could probably do 3 portions over rice

Ash - Dec 01, 2019

It didn’t taste like an Indian curry at all. There isn’t enough flavour. I also think it might have better with tinned tomatoes rather than fresh.

Greg - Nov 30, 2019

This was our first cooked recipe from Simply Cook and it was gorgeous and delicious.

Louise - Nov 26, 2019

Flavour was lovely but didn’t enjoy the paneer - next time would use a diced potato instead.

Halloumi might have been nicer

Better than I expected, but a cheese with flavour would be a bonus

Susan - Nov 14, 2019


Isabelle - Nov 13, 2019

Absolutely delicious, much more tasty than the ingredients list would suggest!

Henna - Nov 09, 2019

One of my favourites!

Tanesia - Nov 08, 2019

Tasty, but could be a bit more seasoned. Added a little bit of water to make more of a sauce and less spinach than it said as it looked way too much & was right

Karin - Nov 07, 2019

Really nice just needed a bit more seasoning

Ann - Nov 07, 2019

Not that keen on paneer but would substitute next time. Otherwise very tasty

I used hallumi and it was lovely
