An Indian recipe for today. A recipe with Paneer, a typical Indian cheese. You can find it in Indian stores and in many supermarkets nowadays. I hope it is not very difficult to find for you.


10 oz spinach
16 oz paneer
Some extra virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon ground Kashmiri red chillies or hot pimentón
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
8 oz crushed tomato
1 tablespoon flour, dissolved in some water
4 oz milk or cream
Some salt to taste
4 slices of tomato

Start preparing the spinach. To do that, wash them and remove the stalks. Then put the spinach in a pan with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. After that, remove the spinach from the pan, drain it and cut it in little pieces. Reserve the spinach.
Now take the paneer and dice it. Next, put some oil in a pan, heat it and cook the cheese for about 4 minutes. Remove the cheese from the pan and reserve it.
In the same pan, and after turning the fire low, put the cumin, the turmeric and the ground Kashmiri or the pimentón. Stir well and then add the ginger. Add the tomato and go on cooking for about two minutes. Then add the spinach and mix well.
Now add the flour dissolved in water, stir and add the milk or cream. Make sure if it needs some salt and let it simmer for five minutes.
Finally, add the cheese, mix well and simmer for two more minutes.
You will have your paneer ready now. Serve when it is hot. Add the tomato slices over the dish. Enjoy!
