Palak Paneer, Spinach Curry With Cottage Cheese

Palak Paneer is one of my favourite indian dish.
I ucually order Palak Paneer, or if not, Goan Prawn Curry.
This is quite interesting to make, not much hard work if you have food processor or mixer.
Also, I included home-made paneer recipe too.
You can buy it in super market but I really prefer home-made one because of it taste is much better than store-bought. Milder, Creamier and even healthier.
It is take a bit of process but worth to try, I believe.
