Indian food is delicious, and curries are the ultimate comfort food, but sometimes they aren’t the healthiest. This keto-friendly instant pot palak paneer is an exception. It’s easy to make, packed with flavors and spices, and contains all the benefits of spinach.

The star of the show is the paneer cheese. It’s super high in protein and full of calcium, iron, and fat, meaning you’ll feel fuller for longer. Because of this, paneer cheese is a popular protein substitute in curries for vegetarians. The vibrant green color comes from the spinach. This leafy green veggie is loaded with vitamins and full of fiber to help keep your digestion optimum. Fresh spinach is recommended; however, frozen spinach is a secondary option if you don’t have any fresh ones on hand.

The intense and delicious taste comes from the inclusion of many spices and herbs, like cumin seeds, garam masala, coriander powder, garlic, and paprika, which give that traditional Indian curry flavor. Add a generous helping of fresh ginger and a serrano pepper for a kick and mouth-watering spice. If you are not good with spicy food, you can reduce the amount based on your preferences.

This palak paneer pairs perfectly with the light and flavorful cumin cauliflower rice as a white rice substitute. Cauliflower has a subtle flavor, and it absorbs all the rich spices from the curry.
