palak tofu 

This is my version of this traditional Indian dish. It is usually a vegetarian dish . In my area theres no cheese that resembles the texture of fresh paneer, so I found tofu to be the closest thing like paneer . This is a great benefit, because it is more nutritious. This is a non-spicy version , so if you enjoy spiciness just adjust the chili to your taste. you can also change the green peppers for whatever spicy green chili it is available in your area. I hope you can give this a try and enjoy with loved ones ;)
