  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan. Stir in the paneer and turmeric and cook over a high heat for 5 mins until golden. Transfer to a plate; set aside.
  2. Add the curry paste to the pan, and cook on a low heat until it changes in colour, adding a splash of water if it looks dry. Stir in the spinach and cook for 3-4 mins to wilt. Stir in the lemon juice; remove from the heat. Spoon 1 tsp of the spinach mix onto each poppadom, then top each with paneer. Sprinkle with the mustard seeds and chillies. Serve immediately.
