  11. I happened to eat butter masala with spinach instead of paneer and my kids loved it so much. I had not cooked any butter masala before. I chanced to see your recipe and cooked it with spinach instead of paneer.(Just added spinach before the gravy really cooked well and allowed for the spinach to cook well.) It turned out so well. And I have been doing it often as it has become a favourite dish in the family. Thank you for the recipe.
