Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Ten-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps

Wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)

2 Ten-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

Now, let's get started!

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Add the mini coriander naans to a baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 5 min or until warmed through

3 Ten-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

While the naans are baking, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Chop the paneer into bite-sized pieces

Once hot, add the chopped paneer to the pan and cook for 3 min, turning once halfway until beginning to turn golden

4 10-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

Squeeze the pouch[es] of steamed brown basmati rice to separate the grains

Tear the top corner of the pouch[es] (just a little!) and microwave for 2 min or until piping hot

Tip: If you're cooking two packets, pop them in together but increase the microwave cook time accordingly!

5 Ten-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

While the rice is in the microwave, chop the tomatoes into wedges

6 Ten-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

Add the curry powder and cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy) to the pan with the paneer and cook for 10 secs

Add the mild curry paste and tomato wedges and cook for 1 min further, stirring until fully combined

7 Ten-Min Chilli Paneer Masala

Add the baby leaf spinach with a small splash of cold water and cook, covered, for 1-2 min or until wilted

Once wilted, stir the clotted cream through the sauce – this is your chilli paneer masala
