I tried to make palak paneer, an Indian dish, but was short many ingredients so I decided to fashion the dish after an afghani dish I'd had.

We really enjoyed this spinach dish alongside our butter chicken tonight. I added quite a bit more yogurt to this spinach as we like it more creamy and because it had to simmer for 30 minutes which tends to dry it out otherwise. Nice spices and flavor. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2013.
