    NOW FOLLOW OUR SIMPLE 3 STEP PROCESS

    STEP 1: CHOP IT

    Finely chop the onion and finely grate the garlic and ginger. Gently fry in a pan with a splash of oil. Keep on a low heat for approximately 4 minutes until the mixture turns translucent.

    Top tip: if you find the mixture sticking to the pan, add a splash of water.

    STEP 2: SPICE IT

    In a bowl, combine BANG!'s spices with 50ml of water. Blend into a smooth, thick paste. Pour the paste into the pan and continue on a low heat for approximately 4 minutes. This will magically turn into your curry sauce! For an even richer sauce, add quartered cherry tomatoes or half a can of tinned tomatoes.

    Top tip: look out for oils emerging from the same, then move onto step 3.

    STEP 3: MAKE IT YOUR OWN

    Add the paneer and raise the heat for about 3 minutes. Add up to 200ml of hot water, lower heat and simmer for 12 minutes. Add the spinach, cover and cook for another 10 minutes on a low heat. Fold the wilted spinach into the curry and it’s ready for you to dig in!

    Optional extra: finish by garnishing with chopped coriander or curry leaves.
