    3. Add the remaining oil to the pan, reduce the heat and stir in the curry and lime leaves, cumin seeds, ginger and garlic. Fry for 1 minute. Stir in the turmeric, chillies, tomatoes, stock and garam masala. Season and bring to the boil.

    4. Add the potatoes, onions and paneer. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Tip in the broad beans, coriander, spinach and some seasoning, then simmer for a further 4 minutes. Serve sprinkled with the pumpkin seeds.
