Instructions

Prep vegetables

1 Prep vegetables

Chop the paneer. Peel and very finely chop the brown onion. Peel and mince the garlic. Finely chop the green chilli. Boil the measured water and dissolve the vegetable stock cube in it.
Boil rice

2 Boil rice

Add the basmati rice, measured water and salt to a pan with a lid and bring to a boil over a high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 min or until the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Remove the pan from the heat and keep covered until serving. Fluff with a fork before serving.
Make sauce

3 Make sauce

Heat a pan over a medium heat. Add the ghee and onion and fry for 5-6 min until softened. Add the garlic, green chilli (spicy!), ginger paste, cumin and garam masala and chilli powder (spicy!). Cook for 1 min until fragrant. Add the vegetable stock, tomato passata, honey and cooking cream and simmer for 10 min until thickened.
Blanch spinach

4 Blanch spinach

Meanwhile, trim the spinach stems. Roughly chop the spinach. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the spinach and boil for 3 min. Drain and squeeze out any excess water. (See pro tip!)
Fry paneer

5 Fry paneer

Heat a second non-stick pan over a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Once hot, add the paneer cubes with a pinch of salt and fry on all sides for a total of 5-7 min until nicely browned and starting to crisp.
Blitz sauce

6 Blitz sauce

Meanwhile, add the simmered sauce and the drained spinach to a food processor and blitz everything for 2-3 min or until smooth. Serve the fried paneer in the sauce over the basmati rice. Slice the lime into wedges and use it as garnish.
