Palak Paneer is my favourite Indian Vegetarian Curry of all time! Also known as Saag Paneer, it is a creamy Spinach Curry with bouncy fresh Indian Cheese known as Paneer. A wonderful change from Tomato based curries, I'm sure you're going to love this!

In a blender/food processor, puree the Tomatoes. Then add Spinach, and pulse so that the Spinach remains slightly coarse.

In the same pan, heat remaining Oil and Butter. Add Onions, and cook until soft and brown. Add spices and sauté for 15-20 seconds. Add Tomato/Spinach mixture, Water, and Salt to Taste. Cook for 15-20 minutes on medium heat, stirring occasionally. The mixture will thicken, and the Spinach will transform from a bright green, to a greenish-brown colour.
