"wow, a great recipe. It tasted fantastic even with lots of substitution: I didn't use half and half - just more yogurt, substituted chickpeas with haricot beans, memental for panir, fresh spinach for frozen. A great way to eat more yogurt and spinach."- ITcooking
Top-ranked recipe named "Indian Spinach (saag Panir)"
Thaw spinach. Place in food processor with its liquid and process until smooth. Squeeze out excess liquid.
Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saut until translucent. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Add spices and cook until fragrant. Add yogurt, half-and-half, spinach, and drained chickpeas. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until heated through. Add cheese cubes and continue heating until cheese is warm but not melted.
If Panir is unavalable any cubed mild white cheese may be substituted or it can be left out.
Chri5tina 1 month agoSpouse loves it. I used Paneer cheese (don't know if it is the same) with garlic Naan bread. It is a classic in my home. We make it every other week!

Leahfiorella 1 year agoAll time favourite. This is also good with potato or fried tofu, especially if you have a hard time buying Panir locally.
Fawc 2 years agoThe family really enjoyed this we used a mini Swiss and it was good. The cubes of cheese melted to quickly so it was all mixed up but we all still really enjoyed the dish

jmschaub 2 years agoI wasn't going to review this because I forgot to buy half & half and used 1%. Plus the spinach wasn't drained. So it was a bit soupy. But when reheating it and all that excess liquid was gone it was quite tasty.
