Method
For the stuffing

  1. Steam the spinach leaves. Squeeze out the water.
  2. Chop the spinach leaves finely and mix with the paneer, green chillies and salt.

For the dough

  1. Mix the flour, butter and salt. Add water and make a semi-stiff dough.

For the cream sauce

  1. Heat the butter, add the flour and fry for 1/2 minute.
  2. Add the milk and 1/2 teacup of water and cook until the sauce becomes thick.
  3. Add the cheese, cream, salt and pepper.

For the tomato gravy

  1. Boil the tomatoes without any water. Blend in a liquidiser and strain.
  2. Add the sugar, oregano, ajwain, chilli powder and salt and boil for 10 minutes on a slow flame.
