I find the best way to make this a super quick meal is to whip up the korma paste in advance. It will keep fine in the fridge, but I also freeze it in small portions so I have korma paste on hand whenever I might need it!

I love how simple this paneer spinach curry is, and the fact it all takes place in just one pan! My favourite kind of mid-week meals always involve minimal dishes afterwards!
