Palak Paneer, but easier Palak Paneer, but easier
Number of Servings: 3


    14 oz firm tofu
    4 tsp canola oil, divided
    3/4 tsp salt, divided
    1 onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick
    2-4 cloves garlic, chopped (to taste)
    1 1/2 tsp grated ginger
    1 tsp mustard seeds
    12 oz baby spinach
    1 cup fat free plain yoghurt
    1 1/2 tsp curry powder
    1 tsp cumin


Cut tofu into thirds lengthwise, eighths crosswise, and half paralel to your work surface. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in large pan over med-high heat. Add tofu and 1/4 tsp salt. Cook until browned on all sides, 8-10 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Add remaining 2 tsp oil and reduce heat to medium. Add onion, garlic, ginger and mustard seeds and cook until onion is translucent, 4-6 minutes. Add spinach in batches as will fit in pan until wilted, 4-6 minutes.

Combine yogurt, curry powder, cumin, and remaining salt in a small bowl. Add to the pan with tofu and onion mixture and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes

Makes 4 servings per printed recipe, but I made a double and divided into 7 total.

Number of Servings: 3.5

    Very Good. I only used 1 tsp of oil and I fried the onions and spices with the tofu, to give the tofu more flavor. The juices from the tofu and onions were enough not to burn. I also used a no-stick pan. Besides that the recipe was awesome! - 3/17/08
