Saag Paneer

Indian Saag Paneer

This dish became popular in the United States as Palak (spinach) Paneer. Saag Paneer is more flexible as you can use and combine any green leaves you like. 

Paneer is an Indian fresh cheese similar to unsalted cottage cheese. It melts not easily. We included in this recipe plenty of options for an even delicious dish if you can’t find paneer.

  • Substitute paneer with tofu, feta, garbanzo beans (drained can), or cottage cheese, and/or serve it over boiled potatoes.
  • If you don’t have a food processor, chopped the leaves finely. Or use baby leaves and use them whole for more texture.
