How to make it

  • Put the well-washed spinach leaves into a pan with the water that clings to them, add the fenugreek leaves (if used), cover and steam until spinach is soft. Drain well and chop finely.
  • Cut the ricotta into cubes and spread on absorbent paper for a few minutes so that surface moisture is absorbed. In a small, deep frying pan or karahi heat enough oil in which to deep fry the cubes of ricotta. Add a tablespoon of ghee to flavour the oil. When oil is very hot, fry a handful of ricotta cubes at a time. Have ready the turmeric stirred into 1 cup of hot water and when the ricotta is pale golden lift out on a slotted spoon and drop the cubes into the turmeric water. Repeat until all the ricotta is fried, leave in the water for about 5 minutes, then drain.
  • Heat about 2 tablespoons of the oil in a saucepan and add the black cummin seeds, asafoetida, coriander, chilli powder and ginger. Stir and fry briefly, taking care not to burn the spices. Add the spinach and salt and stir for a minute or two, then add about 1/4 cup hot water and the sugar. Simmer for 5 minutes. Stir the yoghurt until it is smooth, add it to the spinach and stir well. Add cubes of panir and simmer for 10 minutes longer. Serve hot with rice or chapatis.

    " It was excellent "
    chuckieb ate it and said...
    I made this last night and the flavours were excellent! I didn't have black cumin seeds so I just used regular ones and I didn't have asafoetida or fenugreek leaves either. I used Greek Yogurt but when I added it to the spinach mixture the yogurt curdled. I checked the due date and it was totally fresh. If you know why that might have happened I'd love to know. Your's looks a lot creamier. Mine tasted great but didn't look really great. Excellent recipe. Thanks for sharing. I'll give it another try!
