How to make Saag Paneer

  1. 1. Clean out the spinach leaves wash and keep aside. Repeat with fenugreek leaves and mustard leaves
  2. 2. Blanch the leaves in boiling water for two minutes. Drain and keep aside.
  3. 3. Once the leaves are cool, grind them until pasty or your desired consistency.
  4. 4. Heat a wok with the oil, splutter the cumin seeds in it. Add the ginger paste, garlic paste and chopped onions to it. Fry until the onions are brown.
  5. 5. To this mix add chopped green chillies, tomatoes, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, chilli powder and salt and pepper. Add all the leaves to it and cook until the raw smell disappears from the leaves almost 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. 6. Add cream to the saag along with the sugar and adjust for seasoning.
  7. 7. Cut the paneer into cubes and shallow fry in 2 tblsp of oil before adding to the saag mixture.
  8. 8. Serve hot with chapatis
My Tip: Add 1/2 a cup of milk to the saag mixture while cooking it, to remove any kind of bitterness and for a smoother saag experience
