I lo-o-ooove Saag Paneer. And in my higher carb days, I used to love Matar Paneer, which is green peas with paneer.

I'm very lucky in the community where I live there is a great deal of ethnic diversity .. and many foods are readily available. I can buy paneer at my local NoFrills grocery


Thanks for this recipe


Doreen
