This paneer recipe is really very tasty. I make paneer gravy mostly using this recipe only these days. I prepare this recipe using both homemade fresh as well as frozen paneer. It is a very simple and easy to prepare recipe..



Here is the recipe..

Salt to taste
Kasuri Methi - 1 Teaspoon crushed
Garam Masala - 1/2 Teaspoon
Sugar - 1 pinch
Fresh cream - 3 Tablespoons
Coriander leaves - 1 Tablespoon chopped
Water as required

Method :
1. In a cooking vessel add 1 Tablespoon butter and 1 Teaspoon oil. Oil is added so that the butter does not burn or turn brown. Fry the paneer pieces on low flame till slightly brown and remove them and keep aside.
2. Add chopped onions and cashews with a pinch of salt and fry till the onions turn slightly brown.
3. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes turn soft and are cooked.

5. Fry till the spices are mixed well and cooked.

7. Blend this to a very smooth paste by adding some water if required.

8. Pour back the paste to the same cooking vessel and add one more tablespoon of butter. .
9. Turn on the heat on low flame and cook for a minute.
10. Add the kasoori methi and garam masala and mix well. Add a pinch of sugar.
