One-Pan Paneer Palak Baked Gnocchi

Palak Paneer is a smooth rich spinach gravy with cubes of Indian cottage cheese. A rich, already creamy dish, it’s made even better when you combined it with any kind of starch just to cut its strong flavour - from rice, prata, even pasta. And here, we’ve combined Palak Paneer with gnocchi in this One Pan Baked Palak Paneer recipe. A great family dinner, or to bring to a potluck, especially if your crowd favours Indian and Western cuisine - it’s a perfect combination of both!
