Here is the recipe for the same.

1 medium sized onion (finely chopped)
2-3 green chilies
1tsp cumin powder
1/4 inch ginger finely chopped

pinch of turmeric powder
1tbsp red chilly powder
1tbsp whole garam masala (2 cloves, 1/4 inch Cinnamon stick,2 cardamoms)
(You can substitute with 1tbsp masala powder instead of whole garam masala)
Salt to taste
1. Cut the spinach and boil for 5 mts in hot water. (Don't cover the lid while cooking the spinach. This way you can keep the green color of the spinach.). Once the spinach is cool make a paste in mixer/grinder. Keep it aside.
2. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel. Add the whole garam masala. Add chopped onions, chopped ginger, chopped garlic . Once the onions turn golden color add cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilly powder, turmeric powder.
3. Add chopped tomatoes. Once the tomatoes are cooked completely in masala/spices add the spinach paste.
4. Add salt and cook for 5-6 mts. Once the spinach starts boiling add paneer cubes. Cook for 5-6 mts on low heat.
Turn off the heat and garnish with fresh coriander. Palak Paneer is ready to serve with nan/roti.
