a) Frying paneer is optional.
b) For extra richness to the gravy mix cream once you switch off the stove.
c) Add peas is optional,as my kids love peas i try adding to lot of recipes.
d) Instead of blanching spinach you can fry,cool & grind to a puree.
e) Some add chopped tomatoes to this dish,but i have not used.
