    1       Lg           Onion
    6                    Cloves garlic
    1       Oz           Fresh ginger
    1       Lb           Frozen spinach, thawed
    1       C            Plain yogurt
    4       Oz           Buttermilk
    2       Ts           Red chili powder
    2       Ts           Garam masala
    1       C            Half and half
    6       Oz           Paneer, cubed
                         Salt to taste
 
   Grind the onion, garlic, and ginger into a fine paste. In a medium
 saucepan, combine the paste, spinach, yogurt, buttermilk,   chili
 powder, and garam masala. Simmer at medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes.
 Mash the ingredients with a potato masher. Add the half and half. Simmer
 until the mixture has a creamy consistency, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the
 cheese, simmer 5 minutes. Season with salt. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
   Sharon’s Notes:   I didn't bother to grind the onion, garlic & ginger
 into a paste. I sauteed them in a little oil before adding the spinach,
 etc. I also browned the paneer cubes in a little oil. I substituted
 whole milk for the half & half.
