Palak and paneer have teamed up successfully in many dishes ranging from subzis to parathas .Here, they come together again to make a very exciting starter, the Palak Paneer Toast. This is a nice and cheesy starter, in which crisp pieces of toast are topped with a lusciously creamy mixture of spinach, paneer and cheese. You must make sure you serve it immediately on preparation, while the bread is crisp, so that you can relish the contrast between the creamy topping and the crisp bread. If you leave it for too long, it will get soggy. You can also try other starter recipes like the Paneer Fritters and the Zucchini Toast .
