    Can substitute serrano chiles for Indian green chiles.

    Loved loved loved this dish! The ghee taste was pretty strong for me, so I’ll cut back or use oil next time.

    The coriander seeds didn’t blend in the Vitamix and the texture wasn’t pleasant. I’d like to try again and grind the seeds separately.

    5 stars. Holy cow this saag packs a punch of flavor and hits all the notes - spicy, herbacious, salty with a mild bitterness. Yum. I blended this in two batches using my Ninja smoothie blender and it decimated the coriander seeds no problem. Will make again with some roti!

    I wish I read the notes before making. I had the same problem with the coriander seeds. Will just use ground next time. Mine was a tad too salty, maybe due to my feta. I'd start with 1/2 tsp kosher. Otherwise, it had a really good flavor.

    I found this recipe at the right time, since I had feta on hand but not paneer. We thought this was great. I agree with the suggestion about grinding the coriander seeds separately, but otherwise this was a really good dish.

    I love the feta! My blender did not break down the coriander seeds, though. Next time I’ll sub in ground.

    A new twist to saag paneer since the feta is more flavorful than paneer. When I made this the coriander seeds didn't get ground up in the food processor. Next time I'll bash them some in a mortar and pestle before adding to the dish.

    This is definitely good, the taste rewards the effort put into the dish - I'd just caution others not to have your pan too hot when you add the feta - I was being somewhat cautious, and mine melted!
