    I took this from the Betty Crocker cookbook for Indian food and modified it for a lower fat version. This is an amazing recipe! See my cheese recipe for reduced fat paneer (#246295).

      Oh this is so good! This is my favorite dish when we go to the local Indian Restaurant. I get cravings for it all the time and I finaly know how to make it! I'm so happy! I did cut the cayenne in half and I'm really glad I did. I like hot, but even with the 1/2 tsp this had a good kick. Next time I will decrease the cream as well - It took a bit away from the perfect tomato/spice mixture (and I even added a little extra spinach to use it up). I looked up how to make the panir, and having made mozzarella before it seemed like a very very similar cheese so I used cubed mozzarella (that was at room temp) in place of panir. I just added it last- after the heat was off and it had cooled somewhat. Worked out great! This is such a keeper!

      Awesome! I love saag paneer, and this recipe was so simple and easy! I didn't think I could make this dish so easily at home. We didn't change too much.. I doubled the recipe and made adjustments to some of the spices to fit our tastes. I also added one large onion chopped, and we only used about half the suggested amount of cream as some others suggested. And we only used 7 oz. of paneer cubed even though we doubled the spinach. If I made any change next time, I'd probably use less cayenne and process the spinach to get a more creamy smooth texture. We like it spicy hot, but it was a little too hot for us.
