INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 cup Massel liquid vegetable stock
  • 200gm paneer, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 2 long green chillies, roughly chopped
  • 3cm piece ginger, peeled, roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled, roughly chopped
  • 1 large red onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, blitzed
  • 200gm frozen spinach, thawed
  • 2 tsp. coriander seed
  • 2 tsp. cumin seed
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam marsala
  • 1 tsp KEEN’S Chilli Blend
  • ¼ cup Cobram Light Olive oil

METHOD :

  • In a mortar and pestle, combine coriander seeds and cumin seeds and pound to breakdown.
  • In a food processor combine KEEN’S Chilli Blend, ginger, garlic and red onion and blitz into a chunky paste.
  • Heat Cobram Light Olive oil in a wok over high heat. Add pounded coriander and cumin seeds and fry off for approximately 1 minute until aromatic. Add chilli/onion paste and fry off, stirring continuously for approximately 5 minutes until slightly darkened in colour. Add tomato puree and powdered spices, stir to combine.
