saag paneer without the paneer

Reply Fri 13 Aug, 2010 08:01 pm
So, a while ago, I started a thread about doing my own saag paneer (sorry, no link), but hated the results.

But, I'm still tired of buying boxes of spinach and stuff.

The first time I did it, it took a lot of ingredients via an online saag paneer recipe, and then I was overwhelmed by the result, too strong, even for me, so I threw it away, sadly.. I should have somehow diluted it, but I was tired by that time.

It happens that I am still tired of paying for boxes of saag panneer..

so, this time, I washed and chopped two bunches of spinach and a tbs or slightly more of butter, and a swirl of olive oil

cut up and minced a fat garlic clove

added a tad of cumin, pasilla chile powder, a smidge of ginger powder (I usually use real ginger, but the last time it, and whatever else I added from the recipe, killed me, I need to learn to moderate that)

plus blotch of salt.

I didn't even get to the paneer part, which was good, as my ricotta was on the old side. The greens tasted great.

I know this isn't real saag paneer, but it's pretty good.

I think using frozen spinach is acceptable....

By boxes, I meant the packaged cartons of Saag Paneer, Kashmir spinach, and whatever trader joe's calls their package. Far as I can see, they all have too much salt and cost a bunch if you happen to love the mix of spinach and (pressed ricotta).
