  • Finely grind the spinach, coriander leaves, cumin, peppercorns, chilli, cardamom, ajwain, turmeric and half the onions with some water.

  • In a saucepan, heat 3 tbsp cooking oil/butter, fry the remaining onions well.
  • Then add the ground mixture 2-3 tbsp at a time, frying well. Then add salt and sugar.
  • Drain the paneer and drop the cubes into the gravy.
  • Simmer open (not covered) for 2 mins and then add beaten cream 2 tbsp at a time, gently folding it into the gravy to get a pleasant green colour. Then simmer (open) till desired consistency is reached.
