This cabbage & paneer stir-fry is my play on the popular palak paneer (spinach & cheese) or saag paneer (mustard greens & cheese), but made with cabbage, which is in season now, instead of with spinach or greens. When I teach my cooking classes, I always stress that Indian recipes are super flexible, meaning that you don’t have to get into a rut by using the same ingredients over and over again for one recipe. This curry is an example of that, and the cabbage actually adds a totally different texture, giving the dish a good crunch.
I got a small head of cabbage from the farmer’s market
I chopped the cabbage up and cubed & lightly fried some paneer, Indian cheese.
This stir-fry uses a few Indian spices and cooks up really fast. I ended up eating it with some flatbread and yogurt on the side.
Hope this stir-fry inspires you to go beyond saag paneer, although saag paneer is really good too:)
