Simple and delicious… You’ve got to try this saag paneer recipe!
Saag paneer is such an amazing curry! I just love it.
This is also one of my favourite saag paneer recipes. You could just add the paneer raw but in this saag paneer you marinate the cheese overnight and then fry it.
This takes the saag paneer to a whole new level.
Which spinach should I use, fresh or frozen?
I am a big fan of frozen spinach. It is washed, cooked and then flash frozen to keep all the goodness in.
You could also use fresh spinach but many studies say that the frozen stuff is actually better for you. No chance of sandy spinach when you use frozen spinach! Go for frozen.
This saag paneer recipe is quick and easy to make. There are still some things you can do to make it even easier on yourself.
The paneer and be marinated and then fried up to two days before making the curry.
Just cover it tightly and keep the fried paneer in the fridge. Then take it out of the fridge about a half hour before cooking to come to room temperature.
You can also cook (if using fresh spinach) and blend the spinach into a puree a couple of days before cooking the curry.
Make this saag paneer recipe your own…
I usually go light on the spices for this saag paneer because my family don’t like super hot curries.
Feel free to add more chilli powder to taste though.
I do when I’m cooking it for myself.
You might also like to stir in any leftover marinade. It’s tasty so why not?
