Thanks fatma, this dish turned out well. I blanched the palak, green chillies and salt. Then let it cool. In a pan I put jeera, cinnamon stick, onion, garlic and sauteed, added some chopped tomatoes and tomato puree. Let it cool and then pureed it with the palak. I heated oil in a pan and semi fried the paneer cubes and then added the pureed palak-onion mixture. I did not add water, and it turned out quite tasty. Thanks again.

Hi ..most of us are not aware of the fact that tomatoes when mixed with palak lead to stone in kidney....

instead of boiling palak ,just light steam it and grind it to paste and you will have the nutritional value intact.
