    1. We are south Indians. I mean Hyderabadis so, normally we like to eat little bit spicy. rather more masala or chilly. do i make some changes to this recipe. and why sugar?

    2. Hi David,

      You can add more of green chillies or red chilli powder to suit the your spice requirement. Sugar is always added to balance the flavour.. To every salty thing, just a pich of sugar also is enough, it brings out flavour and does not overpower your dish.

  3. Nice to see nutrient information of palak paneer. Many of us are not aware as how palak is useful for us. I have tried only palak several times and many times it was bad in taste. Now when I ever I buy I palak from the grocery shop, I always go for palak paneer. Though mutter paneer is not that tasty still mutter paneer is also very good for health.
