Delicious Spinach Dish with East Indian Spices

Melt half cube butter in pan with 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Dice one large onion and sauté in butter and oil for about 5 minutes
Continue to sauté and add the following ingredients:
4 cloves fresh, crushed garlic
Add 1 lb of fresh spinach (if not in season use frozen spinach thawed and drained)
1 cup plain yogurt (I like Nancy’s Yogurt made here in Oregon)
½ cup buttermilk (choose organic if possible, at least hormone free)
2 tsp curry (I prefer yellow in this dish – but feel free to experiment with your favorite flavor)
2 tsp turmeric
Pinch of sea salt to taste
Pinch of fine ground pepper (white, black or red – I like cayenne pepper because I like it hot)
Simmer for about 10 minutes

Add one cup half-and-half or whipping cream, and simmer 10 minutes
Add 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, gently stir in, and simmer 5 minutes

Serve with naan, pita bread, or any other bread favorite.

    I created this dish with Saag Panir in mind. However, I did not necessarily have all the traditional ingredients. This dish is a delicious main dish served along side of a rice dish, and fruit platter. I have also served it as a side with a curry chicken dish. Enjoy the creamy texture, and full flavor. I especially enjoy it with whole grain pita bread.
