Saag paneer can be substituted for palak paneer. It’s the northern Indian version of this dish and sometimes includes other greens. The cubes of paneer cheese add a creamy richness to this dish, but it’s just as good without if you don’t eat dairy. Simply start with plain palak or saag instead.
You’ll want to sop up the savory sauce with bread. Pita, naan, chapati, challah — it all works.
