Saag paneer is a classic vegetarian Indian dish of cooked spinach studded with cubes of fried paneer cheese, authentic Indian spices such as garam masala and turmeric all combined with creamy yogurt. Serve this wonderfully velvety curry with some basmati rice and tangy chutney.
Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Then add the paneer and cook for 3-5 minutes, turning often, until golden brown all over. Add the garlic, ginger, garam masala, turmeric and tomato purée to the pan and cook for 2 minutes, until the paneer is well coated.
Add the spinach leaves and cook for a couple of minutes until beginning to wilt. Stir in the yogurt, a tbsp at a time, and cook until the spinach is soft.
