    I have made it. Its very nice. More nice than i had in my favourite resturants. One more tip let the oil come out before you add palak puree it will give very nice flavour. This tip was given by my sister in india. Thank u Khana Khazana.

    Instead of frying paneer, it could be soaked in hot water for ten minutes, taste like fresh, even if it is frozen.
