Why I Love This Recipe

Paneer is a type of fresh cheese common in Indian cuisine and is a good source of protein and calcium.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 tbsp oil
1 medium sized onion or 80-85 grams (sliced)
1 tsp garlic (grated)
1/2 tsp ginger (grated)
5 medium sized tomatoes or 400 grams (roughly chopped in chunks)
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 cup water
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup cream
200 grams paneer (cubed)


To a wok/ kadhai, add oil and let heat for a few seconds on medium flame.

Add sliced onions, garlic and ginger and let cook until lightly browned.

Add cubed tomatoes and salt. Cover and let cook on medium flame for 10 minutes.

Take off the lid, lightly sauté the mixture pressing down the softened tomatoes with the back of the wooden spoon.

Add garam masala, chilli powder and cover and cook for additional 5 minutes.

Turn off the flame and add 1/2 cup of water. Let the mixture cool to room temperature for 10-15 minutes.

Transfer the mixture to a blender and puree. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of water and puree again.

Transfer the puree back to wok and cook for a couple of minutes on low flame for 3-4 minutes until it just begins to boil from the edges. Add honey and mix. Turn off the flame and add cream. Mix well.

Add cubed paneer and mix gently. Serve with rice/ naan.
