Ingredients

2 tbsp (30 mL) butter
1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) ground coriander
1/2 tsp (2 mL) chili powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
1 pkg (300 g) frozen spinach, thawed and pureed
1/2 cup (125 mL) plain yogurt, whisked until smooth
Salt, to taste
12 oz (350 g) paneer, cut into bite-sized pieces (about 2 cups/500 mL)

Preparation

In a large, deep non-stick skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat until butter melts. Add onions and garlic; sauté about 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in coriander, chili powder and cumin; sauté for 30 seconds or until fragrant; stirring well to prevent the spices from burning.

Stir in pureed spinach, yogurt and salt; reduce heat to medium-low and cook covered for 8 to12 minutes or until it starts to bubble. Stir in paneer; cook covered for 5 to 6 minutes or until it softens and is cooked through. Give it a final stir and serve warm.

Tips

Frozen spinach works best while cooking dishes like this, which require a reasonable amount of it in pureed form. To use fresh spinach, use 6 to 7 cups (1.50 to 1.75 L) baby spinach and steam until wilted; puree.

Look for paneer in the dairy section of most large supermarkets.
