    This looks amazing. I can only get ground fenugreek. How much would I use instead of fenugreek seeds.

    i even forgot to add the lemon and yoghurt at the end and didn't miss it.

    Cooked it for just thirty minutes the night before a dinner party (to allow flavours to develop) and finished off for a couple of hours in a slow oven before serving, RAVE REVIEWS!!

    Made this today. Did cook it longer in the slow cooker, as made it too early for dinner. What a delicious curry, everyone licked their plates and commented best ever. I'm amazed I made a lamb saag, which was so lovely. I only had lamb chops, so cooked them on the bone, the meat fell off the bone, so tender and flavoursome. This will be a family favourite, no going to takeaway in future, this was voted better.

    I haven't even finished cooking this yet and I am already in love with this recipe!! Used fennel seeds as couldn't find fenugreek and added a little bit of chicken stock when cooking the silverbeet to try and reduce a bit of the bitterness that you can get with s/b. Totally delicious and it's not yet finished!! Great recipe - will definitely be added to our regular meals roster.

    Submitted by bakercosy on 13. October 2016 - 15:20.

    Will definitely cook again as the flavours were delicious. The bunch of silverbeet I had weighed less than 800g which may have been why the sauce was really thick so I had to add more water. Also cooked for 2 hours in the oven once prepared. Authentic taste!

    Absolutely loved this recipe. Made it with chicken as what was in the fridge. Appreciate the tips to reduce the cooking time for chicken by 30 Mins. Will be making this again soon with lamb. 

    Also used yellow mustard seeds instead of fenugreek seeds as I could not find them at the local store. Still tasted amazing.

    Submitted by Kiki66 on 16. February 2016 - 10:00.

    Sensation!!   Lamb saag is one of my favourite curries and this did not disappoint, definitely restaurant quality!  I made the sauce in the thermomix but took the advice of a few of the messages and then slow cooked the lamb and sauce for 3 hours and it was just incredible.  Also added a bit of feta as I didn't have any paneer which I will add with the left overs.  Thanks for sharing such a brilliant recipe.

    Submitted by Jen-A on 19. December 2015 - 13:26.

    This was really yummy! I didn't have a chili so just sprinkkled in chili flakes. As with most recipes of this nature, I made the sauce in my Thermomix and then put the raw chopped lamb and sauce in my slow cooker and cooked on high for about three hours (would normally cook on low but was out of time!). Much more tender, and you can also add more lamb because there is loads of sauce. I just used shop bought garam masala and it was fine. Very tasty - even the kids ate it.

  • Would paneer be fine to use

    Submitted by dtotheaisy on 16. August 2015 - 17:15.

    Would paneer be fine to use instead of meat? Would you make any alterations if using paneer?

    Palak/Saag Paneer would be my favourite meal.

    I made this today and it was beautiful. I had quite a bit of the sauce leftover however. I was thinking of cooking up some more lamb and a few veges in the remaining sauce but am wondering if this will be possible with the yoghurt. Will it separate?

    Submitted by Carola Cocacola on 18. July 2015 - 16:06.

    LOVED this recipe. I used 800g of silverbeet leaves (without the white stalks) and it made HEAPS of sauce. So I poured off about half of the sauce and froze it for a quick and easy meal a few weeks later (where I added 500g of fresh diced lamb again) and cooked it through. Mmmmm, so yummy!

  • Lovely spice balance and easy

    Submitted by Cattywompuss on 7. April 2015 - 09:36.

    Lovely spice balance and easy to make, however I also found this slightly bitter, but my silver beet wasn't fresh.  It had been in the fridge for two days.  So will try it again with fresher greens or spinach.  I wasnt able to cook it in the TM for the whole time as I had to use the TM to make a second curry so after adding the lamb meat I cooked it in a casserole in the oven at 180 C.  I also used shoulder which wasnt the best quality so will try leg meat next time.

    I froze the extra in individual portions with left over rice and I though it was much nicer a week later upon reheating for a pack lunch at work.  With hind sight that may have been because I had origionally served it alongside a butter chicken which was much sweeter.

    Thanks

Another time we left out the meat and put cubed potato in instead for a vegetarian version, it was really really good. Thanks!
