Saag it to me! For our classic saag paneer recipe, we simmer earthy spinach with onions, ginger, garlic and a tomato-based masala, featuring a flavorful mixture of spices: Indian chili pepper to offer a touch of heat, and cumin, mustard seeds and turmeric for added complexity. Floating in the river of spinachy goodness are cubes of roasted paneer, a common Southeast Asian cheese found in many Indian dishes. We highlight the rich spinach and tangy tomato flavors with a spot of yogurt cream.

About our Heat Index: We've developed this Heat Index to give you an approximation of how spicy a particular dish tastes. Keep in mind that people tolerate chili heat in very different ways, so this scale may not reflect your individual experience with a dish.* NO HEAT There's no heat here — safe for the kids. MINOR HEAT Expect no more than a little tingle on the tongue. SUBTLE HEAT One might describe this dish as "peppery." MEDIUM HEAT A spicy warmth that builds as you eat and lingers a while. STRONG HEAT This dish has kick — keep a cool beverage on hand. FIERY HEAT Your eyes will water. Your nose will run. You've been warned.
*Note for sensitive palates: Heat ratings are never guaranteed! Due to unpredictable environmental variations that range from rainfall to chance genetic changeability, chili spice often differs. Even two identical-looking jalapeños can pack two very different heat levels.
