  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 pound baby spinach (Large)
  • 1 cup chicken (Large)
  • 1 container coconut milk (Large)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds paneer cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 cauliflower (Large
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Wash the cauliflower and break it into small chunks.
  • With a knife or food processor continue to cut it down until the pieces are the size of grains of rice.
  • If using a food processor work in batches so the rice comes out uniform size.
  • Set the riced cauliflower aside.
  • In a large heavy bottomed sauce pot add the avocado oil and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Dice the onion and add it to the oil.
  • Mince the garlic and ginger and add them into the pot.
  • Sauté this mixture until it starts to caramelize.
  • Add the fire cider spice or garam masala and other spices.
  • Stir the mixture well and let the spices toast for minute or two.
  • Turn the heat down to medium.
  • Add the stock and all of the spinach and cook it down.
  • Once the spinach is completely wilted add the coconut milk and stir again.
  • Turn the heat down to low and let the Saag simmer for five minutes.
  • In a separate nonstick cast iron or frying pan add the other quarter cup of avocado oil.
  • Cut the Paneer cheese into 3/4 inch square cubes.
  • Heat the oil to medium-high and then add the cubed Paneer.
  • Fry the Paneer on every side until golden brown.
  • Salt the Paneer and remove it from the heat.
  • Meanwhile use your blender or handheld blender to puree the Saag sauce.
  • I like my handheld blender so I can do it in the same pot.
  • Taste the sauce and add salt 1/2 teaspoon at a time until it is salted to your liking.
  • Add the fried Paneer to the Saag sauce and let it simmer over low heat for another 10 minutes
