“I adopted this "saag" but haven't tried it yet. I feel passionate about Indian food and will try it soon and report back to headquarters. It looks like a nice, spicy saag as I like them. I would tend to saute the chicken in oil before adding to the other ingredients. Farmers cheese (paneer) could be substituted for the chicken as could lamb.”
