The Lahsooni Palak Paneer recipe is unique in more ways than one. First, the restaurant-special recipe uses a significant amount of minced garlic in order to make the preparation fragrant and flavourful. The rest of the spices in this recipe are relatively muted so that the garlic flavour stands out and makes the dish a class apart. Another reason why the Lahsooni Palak Paneer is quite unique is that it serves the palak broth separately and the paneer separately. Further, the paneer is grilled for this delightful dish rather than just being added directly. To make grilled paneer, simply marinate paneer with oil, curd, a bit of spinach paste, and salt. Cook it for few minutes on both sides and the dish is ready to be plated!
