  • 220 g Paneer 13.5 syns for the whole recipe
  • 1/2 Tsp Tumeric
  • 1 Tsp Table salt
  • 1 Tsp Mild chilli powder
  • Fry-Light spray
  • 2 Onions peeled and finely chopped,
  • 4 Garlic cloves peeled and crushed
  • 1 Green chilli finely chopped (I use the frozen mini blocks)
  • 1 " Ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 Tsp Ground cumin
  • 1 Tsp Ground coriander
  • 600 g Frozen chopped spinach
  • 200 g Frozen peas
  • 1 Tsp Garam masala

13.5 Syns for the whole recipe, so 3.5 per serving.


  1. Cut the paneer into bite sized chunks. Place in a sandwich bag with the tumeric, salt and chilli powder. Roll around to coat.
  2. In a hot frying pan, coated in Fry Light spray, fry the paneer chunks in batches until browned on each side, gently turning them over and adding more spray when needed. Transfer them to a bowl as they are cooked.
  3. In the same pan, add more spray and the onions, garlic, chilli, ginger, cumin, coriander and fry until soft and golden brown.
  4. Add the spinach and cook for 6 or 7 minutes until cooked through. Blend in the pan so that the spinach and onion mixture becomes a smooth sauce. Add some water if you'd like it to be thinner.
  5. Add in the fried paneer, peas and garam masala and cook through on a low heat for 10 -15 minutes. Add salt to taste.
