1. Wash spinach thoroughly. 2. In a pressure cooker, add spinach & tomato. Add a cup of water & pressure cook it for 5 mins. 3. If using frozen Paneer, defrost it. And then, cut into small rectangular (1’ x ½’) cubes. 4. Shallow Fry these paneer cubes & drop them in a bowl of cold water as soon as you take out from the oil after frying.
