Palak Mixed vegetable Recipe - Palak paneer style Mixed Vegetable Palak Recipe - Side dish recipes

I have posted Diwani Handi in my space. After I saw Palak Mixed vegetable in rakskitchen I have bookmarked. I loved the dish and love the fact that yogurt was used instead of cream. I have book marked it. It is a delicious alternative to palak paneer esp when you are on diet and want to avoid paneer. My son loves Paneer. So I added few pieces. This healthy one pot gravy goes well with poori or chapathi. If you have any left over,  mix it with steamed rice or make a nice sandwich!
