Serve with

We used a Le Creuset casserole dish,


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of avocado oil in a deep set frying pan. Add the diced onion and fry for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli and fry for a further 2 minutes.
  3. Add the garam masala and coconut milk and fry for 1 minute. Add the spinach and kale in batches (it will wilt down immensely).
  4. Once the greens have wilted down use a blending stick and blend until smooth. Alternatively let it cool then blitz in a blender.
  5. Heat the other tablespoon of avocado oil in a nonstick pan. Add the cubed paneer and fry until golden, about five minutes. Sprinkle with salt.
  6. Pour the blended curry sauce over the paneer and add the cashew nuts.
  7. Heat the basmati microwave pouches and naan breads as per instructions.
  8. Serve the spinach curry over rice with naan breads.
