Spinach and cottage cheese 

Spinach and cottage cheese 

Spinach – one bunch
Cottage cheese – 100 grams
Green chillies – 3
Mustard seeds 1/2 teaspoon
Onions – two large
Tomatoes – two large
Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
Garam masala powder- 1 teaspoon

Cut the spinach very fine. Slice the onions and chop up the chillies and tomatoes separately.

In a pan heat oil and add the diced pieces of cottage cheese. When they are fried drop them in a bowl of hot water; this will keep the paneer moist. Make sure the water is not too much (half a cup is good) as the flavours of the paneer will ooze into the water.

In the same pan that you fried the paneer, drop mustard seeds and let them crackle. Then add the chillies and when fried add the onions and cook till translucent. Add the tomatoes and rend this down. Now add the turmeric powder and salt and stir this well. Add the water of the paneer to the onion mixture and cook till ninety percent of the water is absorbed. Now add the finely chopped spinach and stir well. The spinach will reduce rapidly. Drop the heat to simmer and cover this and cook for three to four minutes. Check for salt. Add the fried paneer and stir the ingredients together gently making sure you don’t break the paneer. Serve hot.
