About Red Saag Paneer Recipe

Red Amaranth is a seasonal leafy green in summer and is nutritionally superior than spinach. Making saag paneer with this red vegteable is a great way to pack in some proteins, minerals and vitamins into everyday meals. The undiluted taste of red amaranth leaves with onion is the star of this recipe.

Red Saag Paneer

Ingredients to make Red Saag Paneer

  • Red amaranth leaves cleaned and chopped 600 gms
  • Sliced Red onions 150 gm or 2 medium onions
  • Dry red chillies 5-6
  • Mustrad oil or ghee 2 tbsp
  • paneer cubed 300 gms
  • salt to taste

How to make Red Saag Paneer

  1. Heat mustard oil in a deep pan and add the whole red chillies. Wait till the chillies sizzle.
  2. Add the sliced onions and stir fry till they start turning pinkish. This lends a sweetish caramelized flavour.
  3. Now add the chopped red amaranth leaves and salt, mix well and cook covered for 5 minutes on a low flame.
  4. Open the lid, add the cubed paneer, mix everything well and cover and cook for a couple of minutes.
  5. Serve with Indian flat breads and some raita on the side.

My Tip:

I sometimes add a little anardana (dry pomegranate seed powder) just before turning the gas off. It lends a nice tartness that lifts this red saag paneer.
