5-6 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium size tomato, roughly chopped
1 small onion, chopped
2 tsp coriander powder

Remove the spinach and place it immediately in cold water to halt the cooking process.

Purée the spinach.

Heat 2 tbsp oil on a medium heat in a medium-sized saucepan

Shallow fry the paneer for 2 minutes, or until the sides go brown, being careful not to burn it. Set aside.

Using the same pan, add another tbsp of oil if needed and on a medium heat fry the cumin seeds, chopped garlic and onion for 5-6 minutes.

Mix in the chopped tomato and the cooked spinach and cook for another 5 minutes.

Season the mixture with TABASCO® Green Jalapeño Sauce, coriander powder and salt, tasting along the way.

Cover pan and simmer for another 8-10 minutes.

Add the paneer and the garam masala. Then add the water and cover the pan to simmer for another 8-10 minutes.
