How to make Kadhai Paneer

  1. Grind all the spices listed under "Kadhai Masala", keep it aside.
  2. Make puree of Onion (cut into 2 pieces), tomato (cut into 2 pieces) & cashew nuts (kaaju).
  3. Take a pan, put 2 tablespoon of butter (homemade cow butter, prefered), add in garlic and ginger. Stir till it becomes a little brown.
  4. Toss in pureed tomato onion in the pan, cook it until bubbles start popping up.
  5. Add in Kadhai Masala & haldi. Stir Well.
  6. Toss in Cream, stir well.
  7. Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup water, keep boiling until the gravy thickens again.
  8. In another pan, put 2 spoon of Cow Ghee, Stir In Capsicum (shimla mirch), Onion (pyaz), tomato. Stir well, let it cook until vegetables turn brown or onions are cooked.
  9. Toss in paneer and stir well, switch off the gas.
  10. Toss this vegetable and paneer into puree in another pan (when the gravy thickens, its should take 10 minutes on covered and sim gas).
  11. Toss in coriander leaves (haraa dhaniya) and salt (as per taste).
  12. Switch off the gas, after 5 minutes. Your dish is ready.

My Tip:

1) If you are a health freak, you can lower the amount of these ghee and butter. 2) The more cream you put, the more white the gravy gets.
