Blanch the spinach leaves in hot water for a while and refresh them with cold water.

Pat dry each spinach leaf with a tissue or a thin soft cloth.

Place a butter paper on a dry, flat surface and arrange the leaves such that they overlap each other.

Spread the paneer mixture on the spinach leaves evenly, leaving a gap of ½” from all the sides.

Place the vegetables at the tapering end of the spinach leaves and sprinkle salt and green chillies over it.

Start rolling the butter paper, gently pressing it to compress the arrangements.

As you roll the butter paper, gradually unwrap it simultaneously to expose the spinach leaves.

Once the sushi has been rolled, use a sharp knife to slice the sushi into rings of ½” width.

Serve immediately with peanut wasabi sauce.
