Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Crush the cardamom pods with the side of a knife

Add the basmati rice, cardamom pods, a pinch of salt and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered

2 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Meanwhile, peel and dice the red onion[s]

Chop the tomato[es] roughly

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Boil a kettle

3 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Chop the paneer into bite-sized pieces

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped paneer and cook for 2-3 min until it's browned on all sides

Once browned, transfer the paneer to a plate and season with a pinch of salt

4 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Return the pan to a medium heat

Add the diced onion and cook for 3-4 min or until starting to soften

Once softened, add the chopped tomatoesgaram masala and 3/4 of the chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 1 min or until fragrant

5 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Add the spinach to a colander and pour over the boiled water so that it starts to wilt

Rinse the wilted spinach under cold water until cool

Squeeze the water out of the spinach and chop it roughly

Re-boil half a kettle

6 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Add the tomato paste and chopped spinach to the pan and cook for 1 min

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 250ml [450ml] boiled water

7 Palak Paneer & Cardamom Rice

Add the stock to the pan and cook for 3 min or until the sauce resembles a thick curry

Return the browned paneer to the pan and cook for a final min to warm it through – this is your palak paneer & spinach curry
