Why have you removed the original video that you made for this dish ? It was very useful with some excellent tips as well. Having your good friend alongside while making her favourite dish felt very much, at home, as in any Asian family. Typically the elder mother/MIL trains her daughter/daughter-in-law by sharing her skills hands-on in the kitchen. Nothing objectionable at all about it.

I found the recipe here hard to follow. So, re-wrote the whole thing based on the video, with ingredients listed in order of how they appear in the recipe. Hope this helps! :)

Please note, "fenugreek leaves" are more commonly known as "methi" at Indian grocers.

1# spinach
2 tbs. oil
5 cloves
½” whole cinnamon
4 whole green cardamom
½ tsp. whole cumin
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 c. chopped onion
1 tbs. ginger-garlic paste
¼ tsp. turmeric powder
1 c. chopped tomato
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
½ tsp. cayenne flakes
1 tsp. methi (fenugreek leaves)
2 tsp. chopped green chiles
â…› tsp. nutmeg
1# paneer, ½” cubes, fried
salt to taste

Drop spinach in a deep pot of boiling water, without the lid. Boil just until wilted, then transfer spinach to a blender, along with whatever water clings to the leaves. Puree until smooth. Set aside, uncovered.

Heat oil or butter in a non-stick pan over medium heat, along with whole garam masala (cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, cumin). When spices begin to dance and sputter, add garlic and lightly brown. Then add onion along with a little salt. Sauté until deeply browned and vegetables begin to break down.

Add ginger-garlic paste, turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, cayenne, green chilies, methi (fenugreek leaves), and tomato. Stirring constantly, cook until tomatoes achieve a thick sauce consistency.

Please rewrite the entire page. Heading talks of Potato - nothing to do with recipe! Ingredients and recipe do not match at all. very confusing!
