This is one of my favorite Indian recipes to make. I usually don't include the paneer cheese, but rather just treat it as a spinach curry. Additionally, I simplify the cooking process by putting all the ingredients, except for the half-n-half, in the food processor ahead of time. Then I stew the spinach mixture awhile, and add the half-n-half during the last ten minutes or so.

I don't know. I followed the directions exactly and this just didn't turn out at all.
