With this week's special promotion ofVitamin K Under Eye Circle Treatmentit seemed a good time to add a new spinach recipe to the blog. Spinach, along with other dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, is an excellent source of vitamin K. Nutritionally it plays an important role in blood clotting, bone health and reducing inflammation. When applied topically vitamin K can help repair capillaries which is why it is beneficial for treating dark under eye circles. Vitamin K is only one of many of important nutrients found in spinach, which is ranked by theWorld's Healthiest Foodsas one the world's most nutrient rich foods. I have written a bit more about the benefits of spinach in this previous recipeParmesan Spinach Cakes. Palak Paneer is listed as one of India's most popular recipes, and once experienced it is not hard to see why this vibrant vegetarian dish has become such a firm favourite. It consists of paneer (a firmly pressed cottage cheese) in a thick sauce made from pured spinach and seasoned with garlic and other spices. It is possible to make paneer at home by adding a a little lemon juice to full fat milk and warming gently before straining and pressing, but this can be a timely and fiddly process. Ready made paneer is available in many supermarkets or in Asian food shops. This particular recipe comes fromPranjal Tiwari. This recipe is enough to feed 6-7 people. Serve hot with roti and/or rice.  

Ingredients

1kg Spinach 800g Paneer 2 -3 whole chilli 3-4 onion 2 Tbsp tomato puree 1-2 tsp ginger garlic paste 2-3 bay leaves 1 tsp chili powder (adjust to taste) 1 1/2 tsp coriander powder 1tsp cumin seed 1/2 tsp tumeric 1/2 tsp Garam masala (adjust to taste) salt

Instructions

Heat 2 tbls oil in a pan, and gently saute the onion, tomato, ginger-garlic paste, cumin seed, coriander, chili, garam masala and tumeric. Continue sauteing until oil comes to the surface, adding a little water along the way if required. 4.) Add the pureed spinach and pieces of paneer. Add salt the salt (to taste) and 2 -3 bay leaves. Simmer for 10-15 minutes 5.) Add pinch of kasoori methi (optional) and garnish with a swirl of cream
