Saag Paneer

I LOVE SAAG PANEER!

Anyone make it LC though? The recipe a la Tyler FLorence calls for buttermilk..I guess I could sour some carbcountdown w/ vinegar?

We have an Indian store down the street I can get the Paneer cheese there

The recipe only calls for 1/2 cup and that would only be 5.5 carbs.

Thanks Lisa! I went to the Indian market and was told to use half n half or cream. The lady laughed when I told her I had a recipe that called for buttermilk in it

A the Indian market I was able to get the Paneer cheese, Indian yogurt, Chana Masala seasoning, Tandoori chicken seasoning and some roti for the family.

For the saag paneer I half way followed Tyler Florence's recipe...I didn't measure...but this is what I used by estimation....


1/4 onion chopped & sauteed in water w/ 2 cloves of garlic (trying to eliminate cooking with oil)
16 oz frozen spinach (defrosted)
half n half
4 oz cubed paneer cheese
1/3 c. indian yogurt
curry powder
ginger powder
salt

Dana Carpender has a recipe for Sag Paneer in her 500 Low Carb Recipes book. She admits it's not totally authentic, but I've tried it and it's very good.

2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 package (10 oz) frozen, chopped spinach, thawed
1 teaspoon salt or Vege-Sal
1/3 cup small curd cottage cheese
2 teaspoons sour cream

Melt the butter in a heavy skillet over low heat, and stir in the curry powder. Let the curry powder cook in the butter for 3-4 minutes.

Stir in the spinach and the salt. Cover the skillet, and let the spinach cook for 4-5 minutes, or until heated through.

Stir in the cottage cheese and sour cream, and cook, stirring, until the cheese has completely melted.

I had never heard of paneer cheese so I googled it. Apparently it's cottage cheese. This link gives a recipe for making your own:

Yeah I saw someone making it on a cooking show before...pretty simple. The paneer is very mild in flavor - almost no flavor at all...but gosh it's good in the saag!!!!!

The recipe with the cottage cheese was fine since it completely melted. Of course, I've never had it with paneer cheese, so I may not know what I'm missing.

If you check out the Target website..Andrew Zimmern is on there. Click on his little cooking demos and you'll see one for Saag Paneer Supposedly Target makes a Curry Sauce (I guess it's Archer Farms? )
