What's this?
In the fourth step instead of adding spinach try adding green lentils which are soaked overnight and cooked and also you can add some finely chopped green chilli according to your spice pallet.
Also I have a wonderfull recipe for homemade curry paste..
Homemade Curry paste:
2 medium onions chopped
4 large tomatoes
1 stick cinnamon
4 whole cloves
2 cardamom
2 tsp poppy seeds or sesame seeds or both
4 tsp cooking oil

Add the oil and fry all the above ingredients until halfway cooked.
Let them cool and blend everything together which shall form a thick paste.
This will keep in the fridge for 2 weeks.
