Not exactly what I was looking for, but still pretty tasty. I used whole coriander, and didn't care for the seeds/texture (my fault). Going to try this one again but adjust the spices a little. If you can't find the paneer, an excellent substitute is Mexican Queso Blanco (aka queso fresco) - the texture & taste is very similar.
I made half a recipe for the two of us and it was great. Loved all the flavors and how they meld together. I made homemade paneer Homemade Paneer (Panir - Indian Cheese) to use in the recipe. Served with Best Ever Chicken Balti, Naan plus puppodums as an appetizer.
Fantastic recipe. I like this much better than our local Indian restaurant's palak paneer. I think I added a little more cream because I had to warm it longer at the end (I could only find frozen paneer.) I used normal spinach leaves, and it made it stringy so next time I'll be sure to find the baby spinach. I feel about twenty pounds overweight from dinner, but fiance and I really loved this. Thanks!!
This is a really tasty recipe. I used Stinging Nettles in place of the spinach but followed the recipe pretty much exactly as written. I think I'll add a bit more spice next time as I like this with a stronger flavour. I served it with a combo of wild and brown rice. Thanks for posting I'll make this again.
Really fantastic, delicious. Couldn't get better at a restaurant. I made my own fat-free paneer for this and followed the recipe to a T. Next time I will add some cayenne for some heat. I don't think it makes 6 servings though--not for an entree anyway. It came out to 2-3 modest portions. This is a major keeper!
We absolutely love this recipe and have made it several times for guests. I use half and half instead of the heavy cream. It freezes really well to reheat for lunch. Both our Indian and American friends give this one two thumbs up!
as is, this recipe is pretty good. i made it once, and then subsequently tweaked it to suit our tastes more. i omitted the paprika and added an equivalent amount of cayenne powder. i also used 3/4tsp each of cumin seeds and mustard seeds and sauteed it along with the onion. i then added the spinach directly to the onion, tomato and spices (i didn't see the need to cook the spinach separately). i also pureed all the spinach and added 4tbsp of half and half at the end of cooking, instead of the yoghurt, this way it turned out super-creamy. it was perfect this way, and i will be making it with these modifications in future.
Wow, Sue L - this was delicious! Even my husband who does not like any kind of leaf said so!! The only minor change I made was to puree the full spinach mixture in the blender rather than half as your recipe suggests cos that way my DH would not know what the gravy was :). But he liked it even after I told him what it was. So thank you once, twice and many times more for an easy and tasty way to make my DH eat some leaves!!!
My wife thanks you. I thank you. This is good stuff.
I have tried 4 or 5 other recipes and found this is the best
