We can save duplicate work by memoizing computed combinations at each grid point. Key is to record moves left when memoizing as the combination count will be different for different remaining move counts.

```
def findPaths(self, m, n, N, i, j):
def traverse(r, c, moves, l, h, cache, directions):
if r < 0 or r >= h or c < 0 or c >= l: # out of bounds
return 1
if not moves: # not out of bound and ran out of moves
return 0
key = (r, c, moves)
if key not in cache:
moves -= 1
cache[key] = sum(traverse(r + dr, c + dc, moves, l, h, cache, directions) for dr, dc in directions)
return cache[key]
directions = [(0,1),(0,-1),(1,0),(-1,0)] # list of possible 4 directions
return traverse(i, j, N, n, m, {}, directions) % (10 ** 9 + 7)
```
