What type of Spinach have I used for Kashmiri Palak Curry: Instant Pot Spinach?

I have used fresh baby spinach. Can I use regular spinach too? Certainly! However, using baby spinach eliminates the step of chopping the spinach leaves. I have just thrown in spinach in the IP and blended it later. If you are using regular spinach, I recommend chopping the leaves.
