I love saag for the creamy, smooth, flavor packed dish that it is, I'd never made it at home before but this saag came out pretty great! I think I'll stick to paneer in the future over feta though. If you're not as familiar with indian food this is a decent place to start.

This spinach saag was really creamy and delicious. I served it with naan and a side of rice. All of the spices, like the garam masala and cumin, together are fragrant and delicious.

I used feta cheese but not the yogurt in this dish. It was pretty good as a side, I served it with Indian chicken curry. It was really simple and very aromatic.

I did a combination of mustard greens and spinach, and left out the yogurt and feta for a dairy-free take. Served it with basmati rice and tandoori chicken.

Left out the yogurt and feta cheese for a vegan take on this spinach dish. Lots of really good, aromatic spices which bring out the true essence of Indian food.
