Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then cut onion into 1/2-inch pieces. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Cut paneer into 1/2-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper. Roughly chop spinach.
Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice and half the garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 2-3 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and bring to a boil over high. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter, then swirl the pan until melted, 1 min. Add paneer. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook paneer in 2 batches for 4 ppl, using 2 tbsp butter per batch.) Pan-fry, turning cubes occasionally, until crispy and golden-brown all over, 5-6 min. Transfer paneer to a plate and set aside.
Reduce heat to medium. Add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pan, then onions and peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Add Dal Spice Blend and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min.
Add tikka sauce and coconut milk to the pan with veggies. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 5-7 min. Add paneer and spinach. Cook, stirring often, until spinach wilts, 1-2 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, add spinach in batches.) Season with salt, to taste.
Fluff rice with a fork. Season with salt, to taste. Divide rice between plates. Top with paneer, veggies and any remaining sauce from the pan.
