    1 lb paneer
    10 oz package of spinach (fresh is better, but frozen would work)
    1 bunch fresh cilantro
    3 jalapeno peppers
    1 cup chopped onions
    1 cup frozen peas
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    2 tbsp MDH Kitchen King Mix spice pack
    2 tbsp Shan Karahi/Fry Gosht Curry Mix spice pack
    2 tbsp Swad ginger & garlic paste
    1 tsp mustard seed
    1 tsp cumin seed
    3 dried serrano peppers
    2 cups milk


Remove stalks from cilantro and spinach and rinse well. In a blender, puree spinach, cilanto and jalapenos together. You will need to add about 1/2 cup of water.

In a stove top pot, heat oil and brown onions with spices, ginger & garlic paste and serrano peppers. Cut paneer into bite sized cubes and add to pan to quick fry for about 5 minutes.

Dump spinach puree into pot and add milk and peas. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 20-30 minutes at a simmer to bring everything together.

Spicy & delicious. Serve with basmati rice or warm roti.
