Instapot Palak or Saag Paneer

Instapot Palak Paneer


When it comes to trying out a new technology, A is better than me. He got us hooked to Echo (now kids have more conversation with Alexa than us), fitbit, and now Instapot.

When we got it last year, he was the one who cooked food in it - delicious egg curry, then sambar, rice, dal and Palak paneer was the ultimate. Since it is Lil A's favorite we make it every week.

And soon enough I was hooked to the Instapot too. The masala chole was another discovery. But I digress.

I cook the palak in the instapot and saute the paneer in a pan and it's ready within 30 minutes.  The one trick I have learned is to add some herbs with the greens and it makes it taste fresh and delicious.

Tarkari diye chanar dalna (Paneer and vegetable curry)

Vegetable and paneer curry


When all the leaves fell down last fall, we discovered an abandoned nest in the red maple tree in our front yard. It was small and lasted through most of the winter. In the spring rain last couple of months, it almost disintegrated.

The leaves came back in the maple and we forgot about the nest. Then just yesterday, we found that the birds have come back to the nest, readied it and made it their home again. Now there are four little babies hanging out in the nest.

In other news, the veggie patch has been planted, the roses are blooming again and it is the last week of school.

The temperatures are soaring, we had a few days in the 90deg F. When it happens, I switch to light curries and this chanar dalna or paneer curry is one of them. With onion, ginger and tomatoes as the base, you can add any vegetable available. I added potato, carrot, peas and beans, but you could add some cauliflower, broccoli, summer squashes too.
