Hi far as i know Saag Paneer is made by using different 'greens' especially mustard leaves. I make saag paneer using pudina/mint, coriander/cilantro, methi/fenugreek and spinach/palak and it tastes really good.

I didn't used to eat saag (leafs) earlier. However, when Vibs shot this video I was there and tasted a bit. Since then I am in love with "Vibs style saag paneer". He made it with palak saag aka spinach . This recipe is absolutely delicious.
