Palak Paneer recipe - Paneer recipes

Palak is one of our family's favorite. However, I use even the local version of Palak. I prefer to use an organic version of leafy vegetables. Once in a while I used to buy Indian Palak however I don't find much of taste difference. So now I use the local version of Spinach only. sometimes I use baby Kailan. Kailan is richer in calcium than Spinach. But the taste is little sticky and very slightly bitter.
