Paneer Makhni

Ok with a bar of paneer sitting in our freezer, all I have to do is paneer dishes. Else it would get spoilt. This is one other favorite in the family.
Paneer - 10-15 cubes
Onion - 2
Tomato - 2
Cashew Nuts - 4-5
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 2 tsp
Dhaniya Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 2 tsp
Kasoori Methi - 1/2 tsp
Cream - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Heat oil in a pan, and shallow fry paneer until light brown. Remove any extra oil and put it in a bowl of cold water.
In a pan, heat some more butter/oil, saute chopped onions and tomatoes and grind into a thick paste along with cashew nuts after cooling.
Heat a tsp of oil, add the paste and saute for 5 minutes.
Add ginger garlic paste, salt and all the dry powders and let it boil for 5-10 minutes. Add some water if the gravy is too thick.
Add paneer cubes, cream and kasoori methi and cook for 5 minutes.
Garnish with a tsp of butter and serve hot with chapathis.

Bon Appetit!!
