7-8 pips of garlic peeled
10 cashew/almonds(optional)
1 cup cut spinach leaves

Small piece of cinammon
1 tsp.honey
a pinch of nutmeg powder
Butter or oil 1-2 tblsp.
1 small onion cut.
Salt to taste.
Heat oil and add spinach,garlic,small onions, cummin seeds and cashew and saute till raw smell disappears.Grind this with the soaked kashmiri chillies coarsely and set aside.In the same oil lightly fry cut onions with the cinammon,next add the cubed paneer and saute for another 2 minutes. Then add the ground mixture and cook for just 5-7 minutes. Lastly add salt,honey and nutmeg and simmer for 5 minutes.You can add water if you like the consistency, to be lighter.
Grated cheese can be added on top while serving.
