Recipe Ingredients for Saag Paneer (Erika's recipe)

2 pounds baby spinach
1 tbs olive oil
6 cups milk (for 8-10 oz paneer)
1/4 cup lemon juice (for 8-10 oz fresh paneer)
2 yellow onions, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 cup buttermilk, 1% milkfat
1/4 cup plain yogurt, fat free
1 Salt to taste

Recipe Directions for Saag Paneer (Erika's recipe)

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and blanch spinach for 1 minute, just until tender. Dump the spinach into a colander and press firmly with the back of a spoon to extract as much water as possible. Set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium-high flame. Sauté the onions, garlic, and ginger, stirring, for about 5 minutes until soft.

  3. Sprinkle the mixture with the garam masala and stir to marry the flavors, about 1 minute.

  4. Fold in the chopped spinach and give everything a good toss.

  5. Shut off the heat and stir the buttermilk and yogurt into the spinach to incorporate. The mixture should be creamy and somewhat thick.

  6. Gently fold in the paneer cubes, season with salt to taste.

  7. Serve with steamed basmati rice and/or flat bread.
