25 SAAG PANEER

Saag Paneer a different version of Palak Paneer. Tastes good with chapathis/Parathas and are very easy and simple to prepare.


Palak/Spinach leaves - 2 Bunch ( I used a pack of baby spinach leaves)
Paneer - 1/2 - 3/4 cup grated
Onion - 1 chopped fine
Tomato - 2 small or 1 medium chopped fine
Ginger garlic paste - 3/4 tbsp
Green chillies - 2 slit long
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp
Lime juice - 2 - 3 drops


Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, wait for few seconds and add chopped onions. Fry till they are golden brown and add ginger garlic paste. Saute for a minute and add chopped tomatoes. Mash and cook they are pulpy and mashed really well and water has left fully. Next add roughly chopped greens. Keep stirring now and then till the leaves are shrinked and cooked. Next add chilli powder and mix. Finally add grated paneer and salt and mix well together for 2 - 3 minutes. ( you can also add fried paneer cubes). I have added grated paneer. Switch off flame and add lime juice and mix well. Adding lime juice is optional. Tastes good when added just before serving.
Instead of grating or crumbling the paneer, you can as well cut into thin long strips/pieces and add them.
