Mix together the paneer, salt, basil, black pepper, egg and bread and knead the mixture till smooth.
Dust a sheet of plastic or aluminum foil with some flour and pat the paneer mixture over it into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.
Squeeze out the spinach and spread it in a layer over the paneer, leaving a slight margin all around. Sprinkle some salt over it.
Roll the two things together like a scroll as firmly as you can, with the support of the foil. Refrigerate for an hour at least.
About 30 minutes before serving unwrap the roll and place it on an oven-proof serving dish. Pour the tomato puree over it.
Sprinkle the cheese and ajwain over and bake in a pre-heated oven for about 1/2 an hour.
Garnish with the greens and serve.
