Editors Review

If your kids don't prefer to eat cottage cheese or Indian paneer, you can try with this recipe. Palak paneer or cottage cheese in spinach gravy, is extremely nutritious as well as extremely delicious. Once you taste this, you too would start loving it, just like your kids.

I didn't used to eat saag (leafs) earlier. However, when Vibs shot this video I was there and tasted a bit. Since then I am in love with "Vibs style saag paneer". He made it with palak saag aka spinach . This recipe is absolutely delicious.

Hi far as i know Saag Paneer is made by using different 'greens' especially mustard leaves. I make saag paneer using pudina/mint, coriander/cilantro, methi/fenugreek and spinach/palak and it tastes really good.
