Galakeet paneer

This is my new recipe which I tried with my wife. It is a modified version of palak paneer. So this is what you need.

Carrot (Gajar) -  200gms
Beet - 200gms
Spinach (Palak) - 200gms
Paneer - 100gms
Onion - 1 medium size
Tomato - 1 medium
Ginger and Garlic paste - 2tsp
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
Bay leaves - 1 or 2
Garam masala - 1tsp

The name Galakeet comes from Gajar-palak-beet after removing a few alphabets. Anyway to start with take the three vegetables and wash them thoroughly. Put them in a pan or pressure cooker after peeling and boil them till they are almost cooked. Put the all the boiled vegetables in a food processor and make a fine paste. Cut small cubes of the paneer and fry them till they have a light brown colour. Put some oil in a frying pan. Add the cumin seeds and the bay leaves. Once the cumin starts to splutter put the onion and ginger-garlic paste. Sauté the onion for a few minutes and then add the tomato. Cook for a few minutes and once the tomato becomes soft add the paste from the food processor. Bring the whole mixture to a boil and then add the paneer cubes. Add salt to taste. Cook for few minutes and finally add garam masala. Mix everything in the pan and it is ready. Serve with rice.
