Method:
Defrost the frozen Spinach in the microwave.
In a pan add the oil and Cumin seeds. Let the seeds sputter.
Add the chopped Onions and coo till translucent.
Add the chopped Tomatoes and cook till soft.
Add the Green Chilies.
Add the Ginger and Garlic paste and cook till raw smell disappears.
Add the Spinach and mix well.
Cook for a couple of minutes and transfer the spinach mix to a food processor and puree. (This step is optional)
Place the puree mixture back in the pan and cook for a few minutes.
Add the remaining spices and cook for a few minutes.
Add the Paneer pieces and cook for a few minutes.
Add the salt to taste and mix well be careful not to break the pieces.
Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, till the mixture is well absorbed of the spices and salt.
Add the cream.
Serve Hot.

Do not cover the spinach while cooking, as it will change the color of the spinach from bright green to a darker green.

Happy Eating 🙂
