How to make Guilt free low fat Creamy Shahi Paneer

  1. Soak 2 tbsp almonds and 2 tbsp cashews for atleast an hour. Peel off the almonds and grind it together with the cashews with little water or curd to get a smooth paste.
  2. Dry roast the coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cardamon pods, cloves and grind it in a mixture/blender to a fine powder. Keep it aside. This will serve as the curry powder.
  3. Add 2 tsp oil into a heavy bottom pan. When the oil is heated, add the bay leaf, red pepper and the panch phoron. When the seeds stop to crackle, add the ginger chilli paste.Saute it for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and the almond cashew paste. Cover it with a lid and cook it on low flame for 10 minutes.
  5. When the tomatoes get mushy, turn off the gas. Cool the mixture , remove the bay leaf and grind it to a smooth paste.
  6. Meanwhile, saute the paneer, carrots and peas separately in another pan.Keep it aside.
  7. In a separate bowl, beat the yogurt into a smooth paste. Keep it aside.
  8. Add 1 tsp oil into the heavy bottom pan and return the grind tomato puree into it. Add the Curry powder prepared earlier.
  9. Add 1 tsp degi mirch, 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp punjabi garam masala and salt as per taste. Saute for 5-7 minutes on low-medium flame.
  10. Add the beaten yogurt and saute for another 5-7 minutes till it blends completely.
  11. Add 1.5 cup water and bring the mixture to a boil.
  12. Add paneer, carrots and peas to the gravy. Add desi ghee. Simmer on low flame for 10 minutes. Turn off the gas.
  13. Garnish the gravy with chopped coriander leaves. Serve it hot with naan, roti or rice.
My Tip: Dry roast the dry spice ingredients like coriander seeds, cumin seeds, cardamon pods and cloves on low flame. If roasted on high flame, the spices will lose their flavor.
