Great idea! I halved the recipe but used the same amount of vegetables. The combination I used was sweetcorn, celery and greens. I also ground together the sauce ingredients first and let it thicken to a sauce consistency. I used green chilli and fresh herbs. In place of paneer, I added tofu. It was delicious!
