Palak Paneer

Hi all,
This has been on a long wait, I had been planning to do this but, yesterday was its day. My first experience of making palak paneer. I found it from It looked so laborious, but the final taste was too good and worth the effort. I have made a few alterations from the source. Shall we roll...?

Ingredients: (for 2)
Palak(Spinach): one pack or a whole bunch
Paneer - 1
Ghee - 1 tsp
Onion - 1 medium sized
Tomato - 2 medium sized
Ginger - a small bit

Green Chilli - 2 or as per taste
Garam masala - 1/2 table spoon
Corriander powder - 1/2 table spoon
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tablespoon
Salt - as per taste
Milk - 1/4 cup

- Remove the stem parts of spinach and boil it in water till it becomes soft. Mash the soft spinach to paste.
- Make puree of tomatoes by boiling them in water, peel it and crush it.
- Fry the paneer in ghee in medium flame till golden brown.
