1. Cut the roots and boil spinach in hot water. When spinach has wilted (1 minute), add salt. Once boiled, transfer to ice water.

* Use less hot water for boiling to preserve the spinach flavor.
* When cooled with ice water, spinach green comes out beautifully.

2. When it gets cool, drain the water and process spinach in a mixer.

3. Pour water in a pot and  put it on medium heat. Then put the paneer (bite-sized pieces). Boil paneer until soft and turn off the heat.

* While paneer is boiled, let's go to Step 4.

4. Put the oil in another pan, and slowly stir-fry the materials of ☆on  low heat to make it aromatic.

* The low heat is important. Whole spice is likely to be burnt, so let's not heat the pan too much. 
* Make sure to use appropriate amount of oil . The aroma of the spice fully moves to oil and it makes curry more delicious.

5. Add onion and fry until light gold.

6. Add tomatoes and other ingredients ☆. Fry and mix in the pan.
