This is a cheat's version of the classic Saag Paneer, using cupboard spices and seasoning. If you don't have a spice tin you can still make this Saag Paneer! Just omit the mustard seeds and cumin - it will taste delicious. For a Vegan friendly alternative, just swap the paneer for tofu.
I chucked this together one evening when I really fancied Saag Paneer, but was too lazy to consider chopping garlic and onions or grating ginger (shocking, I know!). The only thing I had to chop was the paneer and boom! Dinner was served!
Recipe (serves 3-4):
200g paneer, cubed
250g fresh baby leaf spinach, washed and drained
10 plum or cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp rye
1 tsp jeeru
1tsp onion flakes
1 tsp garlic granules
3/4 tsp hardar
1/4 tsp red chilli powder (or more to taste)
1 tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
