Spinach, Panir and Walnuts

Serves 3-4

This recipe for spinach, panir and walnuts is great with penne pasta or a cooked grain. Ayurveda recommends fresh, home-cooked meals in order to promote vibrant health and longevity.


  • 4 tablespoons ghee
  • ¾ pound panir (fresh cheese)
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons Maharishi Ayurveda Vata Churna
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat ghee in a large frying pan. Dice panir and fry in ghee for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Wash the spinach and remove the stems from the leaves.
  3. When the panir is done, remove from the pan and set it aside. Add spinach leaves to the pan and fry for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. When the leaves are wilted and most of the water is gone, stir in panir, walnuts and Vata Churna, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve with penne pasta or a cooked grain.
