This recipe for Saag Paneer is from one of the contestants, Jackie, off Masterchef UK.
I really enjoy Masterchef UK version, to me it really is all about cooking, rather then the social experiment Australian Masterchef seems to tend towards.
So if your looking for an interesting vegetarian dish then look no further, this one was really really good.
There are a few elements to prepare but it so worth it.
Firstly the pumpkin rosti is made up from grated pumpkin and potato, chilli and coriander leaves. It is fried in a pan before finishing in the oven.
After blanching the spinach and pureeing it you move on to cooking off the spices, cumin and mustard seeds, and onion, garlic, ginger and chilli.
The spinach and tomatoes are added and allowed to meld together.
Meanwhile you fry your paneer cubes in some butter.
Then you also need to prepare the tamarind glaze from tamarind puree, water, sugar and red wine vinegar.
And finally soften some coconut cream with warm water.
It was delicious, the tamarind glaze is put on the plate and topped with the rosti. Then you place your saag on the rosti topping with the paneer. Finish with a drizzle of coconut cream.
It was an amazing dish, every element had its place.
I will definitely be cooking it again.
