Palak Paneer or Aloo Palak is mostly prepared in every Indian homes. But this recipe is with a twist and it taste so delicious with some unique ingredients in the gravy. Do try, it's luscious green and so finger licking.

In a teaspoon of oil fry the stems and cashew nut till the stems have changed color.
Microwave the palak for 2 minutes. Immediately add a tablespoon of oil and half teaspoon sugar to it and mix it. This helps to retain the luscious green color. 
When cooled grind this to a paste along with onion, ginger garlic and green chillies with 2 tablespoons milk.

In the same pan that the potatoes were fried remove the excess oil and keep 2 tablespoons oil fry the ground onion paste with half cup of water covered with a lid stirring in between till oil leaves the sides.

This Aloo Palak sabzi is delicious on its own. 
Have it with roti , naan , paratha or serve with Yellow Rice which we enjoyed goes well with this.
