Palak tofu is similar to palak paneer. Palak paneer is one of the most popular North Indian dishes. It is basically paneer (a type of soft cheese) cooked in creamy spinach gravy. Paneer is calorie-dense and is loaded with fat especially saturated fat and cholesterol, both of which promote inflammation and heart disease. Tofu is made from soybeans. It is a much healthier alternative to paneer.
