Tara & John's Saag Paneer

Submitted by: AMYBMORRIS

Introduction

A not-too-rich version of sag paneer. Paneer is an Indian cheese which doesn't melt; you can find it in local Indian groceries. Methi (dried fenugreek leaves) are a MUST for this dish.

Ingredients

    3 lbs fresh spinach
    8 oz paneer
    4 Tbs Kastoori Methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
    2 Tbs canola oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 serrano chiles, minced
    1 tomato, chopped
    1/2 Tbs. grated ginger
    1 1/2 Tbs. minched garlic
    3 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp turmeric
    2 tsp lemon juice
    2 tsp salt
    11/2 c. fat free half and half
    1 c. 2% milk
    1 tsp garam masala

Directions

Microwave spinach until hot, drain and chop coarsely.

Heat canola oil in a large saucepan. Add onions and cook until starting to brown--do not burn. Crush fenugreek leaves and add to pot, stir, and cook a minute. Add chiles, ginger, garlic, cumin powder, turmeric, tomato, lemon juice and salt. Cook 10-15 minutes.

Add spinach, cook 5-10 minutes.

Using a stick blender, pulse mixture until slightly pureed. Do not over-process. It should still have texture, not be like baby food.

Add paneer, half & half, milk, and garam masala, heat through.

Makes 8 1-cup servings. Serve over hot basmati.
