Lasooni Palak Paneer

Lasooni Palak Paneer

Lasooni Palak Paneer is made with loads of garlic. Garlic is known as lasoon or lehsun in India. Lasooni Palak Paneer is full of Iron, Fiber, Protein, Nutritious and it keeps you healthy. Garlic has great health benefits. It helps in lowering down cholesterol and builds immunity. Spinach we all know is great with Iron and folic acid. Paneer is great with protein and calcium.  This curry is totally different than regular Palak Paneer. Lasooni Palak Paneer is very flavorful. All I want to say is, try this tasty, healthy and simple recipe.

    Coconut milk can be made by grating the coconut and grind it in a blender slightly.and then squeeze it using our hands through a filter..
