I make this dish with rotis when i have guests at my home for dinner. This is a rich and creamy dish and no doubt the guest and even the family members will be impressed by this.

|PANEER CUBES||200 GMS|
|CAPSICUM||CUT INTO CUBES (FEW)|
|TOMATO||MEDIUM 3 NO.|
|RED CHILLI||1 TSP|
|MILK||1/2 CUP(I USED LOW FAT MILK)|
|CUMIN SEED POWDER||1/2 TSP|
|EVEREST KITCHEN KING MASALA||1 TSP|
|CORIANDER POWDER||1 TSP|
|KASOORI METHI||A PINCH|
Take a non stick kadai and put 1 tbslp of oil in it. Add the capsicum to it and saute for few mins(5-7 mins). Keep it aside.Do the same for paneer cubes also and keep it aside.
I didnt deep fry the paneer cubes.Just sauted in non stick kadai. Even u can add the paneer cubes as it is without doing this.
In the same kadai,add one more tblsp of oil and saute the onion till it turns into a nice golden colour.
When it cool, Grind it along with tomatoes,redchilli powder,corainder powder, cuminseeds powder, kitchen king masala and garlic(if using) and cashew nuts(if using).
Then heat the kadai by adding a tblspof oil ,put the jeeragam and add the ground masala to it . Saute for 5 mins. Add salt.
Now add milk to it and allow it to boil. It gives you a creamy texture and come to a gravy consistency. Add the paneer and capsicum cubes to it and finally garnish with coriander leaves and a pinch of kasoori methi. Add a tsp of butter if you want.
Serve hot with roti/naan.
- You can replace 1/2 cup of tomato puree instead of adding tomatoes.
- Milk can be replaced with 2 tblsp of fresh cream.
