Paneer in hariyali gravy

Today I tried created a hariyali gravy that resembles mirch masala frozen hariyali packets(I love it) after lot of recipe reading. i decided to modify Mallika Badrinath's palak cauliflower base to create my hariyali gravy.
I did make a lot of changes. The end result was just awesome.
If I want a green gravy...this is the one that will grace my table...absolutely fell in love.
Paneer lovers should try this.


1st set
10 cashews
2 spoon poppy seeds
2 table spoon coconut(unsweetened)

2nd set
Spinach 1 cup
2 spring onion bunches green parts alone
green chili to taste
1/2 stalk celery diced(optional)

3rd set
1 green bell pepper diced into small pieces
1 zucchini diced finely
handful of green beans
1 onion minced
5 garlic cloves crushed

4th set

  1. Grind first set finely
  2. saute second set in 1 table spoon oil and set aside
  3. once it cools add it to first set and add the milk and grind into a fine green paste
  4. heat the remaining 2 table spoon oil, add a 3rd set and in medium flame saute nicely
  5. say after 5-10 minutes add the 4th set
  6. once raw smell goes, add cilantro
