A hot dish

The Baltimore Sun

Saag paneer, a dish that blends chopped spinach, spices and cheese, is a fixture on the takeout menus of many Indian and Pakistani restaurants.

The three dishes I retrieved from Baltimore-area restaurants were all bargains, delivering large servings of basmati rice, topped with vegetables and chunks of cheese. All served up enough food for two meals.

I sampled a rich-tasting, brown and spicy version of the $10.60 dish and found it overwhelming. The basmati rice was excellent, though.
