Better than any restaurant version and a lot thriftier! I loved this recipe and it will become a part of my rotation. Yummy! Thanks for a great recipe!

YUM! I made a double batch ... and good thing, too. Next time won't bother to chop the spinach and will serve it with something to add a little heat (for those who like heat). I made my own paneer using "Homemade Paneer" (#207389), also in a double batch. Thank you for the recipe!

This recipe really hits the spot. I'm not sure it tastes just like a restaurant, but it's good and satisfies my need. This is the second time I've made it. The first time I was lazy and added a little water to help my spinach wilt. I processed it roughly (like many of the photos) and used the full amount of cream. The result was pretty soupy and the consistency wasn't what I was looking for. It tasted more like creamed spinach with some indian spices. This time I didn't add any extra water, fully processed it, and added small amounts of cream until it was consistency I was looking for. I'm very happy with the outcome. I also had some Power Blend salad mix that I needed to use up, so that was my base for the second batch. I'd still plan to use spinach in the future to be more authentic, but I'm happy to know that it works well with other greens as well.

I followed the recipe with only one exception. I used baby spinach. I felt that this came out very bland. I served it with Chicken Tikka Masala Indian Basmati Rice and home made Naan. My guests were very impressed with everything but this dish. They politely said they felt it was missing something. I still have some paneer left so I am going to attempt this again. I love it in the restaurant.

We liked this paneer recipe, but thought it needed a little more flavor, despite our increase of the garam masala. Adding salt and crushed red pepper flakes helped a little. Next time, I would add a chili pepper or two like another reviewer did. I liked that this recipe came together so easily, making it great for a weeknight meal. It was bright and colorful on the plate. Thanks!

I really enjoyed this. It also gave me an excuse to make paneer. I love spinach in any form, and this was delicious. Made for ZWT8. Thanks for sharing.

I have never had paneer before and I love it! I made this as directed and blitzed the spinach mixture until smooth. I loved the colour which was great for the Colors Of India table-setting challenge for ZWT8. I would like it not blended too. Thanks Karen Elizabeth! :)

I managed to feed 7 with this! (with some rice but still!) Everybody loved it, the chilli lovers just cut up their own chillies and garnished their meals with it. Made for Zaar World Tour 8 and we very much enjoyed our trip to India. Served with Nimbu Ka Chaval (Saffron Rice With Lime)
