Queso Fresco to the Rescue

This dish is a combination of a couple Indian dishes. It started as Chicken Korma from this book  and I created a bastardized version which combines my other favorite Indian dish Saag Paneer. Basically I added spinach and cheese to it. Since I live in small town Paneer was not readily available and I was not interested in making it…even though I understand it is easy.

I thought long and hard about a substitute and think I found a good one— Queso Fresco. I knew it needed to be a cheese that would retain it's cubist shape, but soften some. It has just a hint of salt…it was perfect. Honestly, it may be the same damn cheese/different continent.
