Make Saag Paneer (Spinach with Indian Cheese or Tofu) easily

I can't believe how easy it is to make this classic dish. After 6 years of tinkering and trying to make this recipe, I finally NAILED it!

So why did it take me SO long to make this dish? I'm an enthusiastic meat lover, lactose intolerant and not particularly keen on eating spinach. So these personal preferences made it a little challenging to make this dish. However after some cajoling from my vegetarian friends, I finally decided to give it my best shot. I'm happy to say, the results are AWESOME! I have zero hesitation to take a lactaid pill so that I can eat this savory yummy dish. It's family sized and freezes well too. You can eat it over rice, pasta or even as an appetizer (per recipe below). I absolutely LOVE it!

Spinach with Cheese Dip:

You can easily make this dish into a spinach and cheese dip appetizer. 

Here's the easy recipe:

  •  Use 8-10 ounces of the cooked dish a.k.a leftovers.
  • Reduce it in a pot by simmering on low- medium heat till sauce has desired thickness.
  • Cover the pot with a tight lid as it does bubble a lot out of the pot.
  • You can also add more crumbled cheese to it to thicken it.
Serve it with corn chips and voilå - you have a wonderful appetizer!


Chef's Tip:

  • Customize the spicy heat with adding or omitting jalapeno and/or heavy whipping cream.
  • Substitute heavy whipping cream with unsweetened coconut milk, if using heavy whipping cream is an issue. 
  • Use extra firm Paneer (Indian cheese) or Tofu so it stands up to the heat.
  • To make homemade paneer, check out the recipe section of our website.

It was delicious!

My wife and I met you as you were setting up at Market District on Sunday morning. We purchased one of all the seasoning kits you had there.

Marcie made the Chicken Tikka Masala over basmati for dinner on Monday. It was delicious! We are so happy we ran into you and purchased your products. We are anxious to try the others.

As you indicated it makes a plentiful amount so we have enough for leftovers. Also we had extra sauce so the next day for dinner I simmered wild shrimp in the sauce and served it over mashed butternut and sweet potatoes. That too was very good.

Thank you Vince and Marcie for your AWESOME review! We are delighted that you loved our Chicken Tikka Masala seasoning kit. We especially LOVE your creative fusion Indian twist of using wild shrimp with the chicken tikka masala sauce over mashed butternut and sweet potatoes. It's ultimate comfort food! YUMMY !

So delicious!

Thank you for another amazing recipe! I made this using your recipe for seafood stew and it was incredible! It was such a treat and so easy to make. I will definitely be ordering another packet to make again!

Soooo good!

Had my first experience making Indian food and so appreciated the kits! Made chicken tikka masala and saag paneer, and they were both excellent. And, they were even better heated up as left overs! Will definitely buy again!
