Palak Methi Paneer Stir Fry


          Greens in general are loaded with iron, fibre, vitamins and calcium. They are healthy and essential for a well balanced diet. So in this recipe I combined both palak and methi along with some sauteed paneer to make this nutritious and yummy side dish. They can be enjoyed either with rice, chapati, poori or paratha. So check for a step by step pictorial recipe to prepare this simple wholesome delicacy.
