Palak Paneer

I am fond of spinach, and my Dh is fond of paneer so it only seemed fitting that the two should be combined into tonight's dinner.
1 Bunch spinach
1 cup Paneer (cubed)
2 Nos Green chilly
1/2 Tsp Fenugreek seeds
1 Tsp cumin seeds
1 Onion (sliced)
1 Tomato
1 Tsp ginger garlic paste
1 Tbsp Coriander powder
1 Tbsp Cumin powder
1 Tsp Garam masala
1 Tsp Red chilly powder
3 Tbsp oil
Salt to taste.
Clean the spinach and remove the stalks.
Cut the tomato into quarters.
Heat the kadai and put methi seeds and cumin seeds.
When the cumin pops add the green chilly, spinach, tomato and saute.
Cool the spinach-tomato mixture and grind along with the ginger garlic paste to a coarse consistency.
Heat oil in a kadai and saute the paneer cubes.When the paneer turns reddish brown, remove from kadai and set aside.
In the Kadai now add the onions and sauteWhen the onion is tender add the ground spinach paste, red chilly powder,garam masala,coriander powder,cumin powder and salt.
Add water as necesary.
When the raw smell of the masala leaves add the sauteed paneer, and let cook for a minute or two.
Serve hot with roti.
