Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Cut paneer into 1/2-inch cubes. Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Roughly chop spinach. Roughly chop cilantro.


Add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/4 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then 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 heat. When hot, add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then ginger-garlic puree, onions, Indian Spice Mix, curry paste and 1 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 1-2 min.


Add crushed tomatoes, coconut milk and paneer to the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, 8-10 min. Add spinach. Stir until wilted, 1 min. Season with salt, to taste.


Fluff rice with a fork. Season with salt, then stir in 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and half the cilantro.


Divide rice between bowls, then top with paneer butter masala. Sprinkle remaining cilantro over top.
