Palak Paneer

Do you eat non vegetarian food daily? I am always questioned. To be frank No.We in fact consume more vegetables than meat.Though many a times it is incorporated with meat .  I don't know why people think that if you are meat eater, you cannot like vegetables. 
But when I look back at my blog, I am shocked to see more non vegetarian recipes. So in all nobody's at fault but me giving the impression of being a  hardcore nonvegie.
So, today I am trying to change that with one of my favourite recipes Palak Paneer. Though K does'nt like paneer. He doesn't understand the taste of paneer. Well there are many things, I don't understand too like eating Quails. Well this is my answer to his not liking paneer.
So now to the recipe.
