Now add coriander powder, chilly powder, and garam masala to it and fry a while until the raw smell leaves off. Add grinded spinach paste to it and add the drained spinach water a liitle and let it boil in a simmer flame until the gravy thickens well. When the gravy starts thickening, add fried paneer cubes and sugar to it. Once the gravy comes to the consistency you require, switch off the flame and transfer it to the serving bowl.
(If you add more amount of spinach, you will get gravy in dark green color. So color of the dish depends upon the amount of spinach we use).
