Paneer Mutter Malai

Paneer is a very comforting ingredient we can play with it very well. But this time I wanted to prepare the gravy in a different way so without wasting much time just started the process. Guys the end results were too good it was almost the same taste as we get in any restaurant. The ingredients used are very commonly available in our pantry. I would be more than happy if you try it I am sure your families too will enjoy it.

Ingredients:
Paneer - 200gm
green peas - 1/2 cup
cashews - 8 to 10
onion - 1 finely chopped
tomato - 1 chopped
tomato paste - 2 tsp
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
ginger - 1"
garlic - 3 to 4 cloves
red chilli powder - 2 to 3 tsp 
turmeric - 1 tsp
garam masala pwd - 2 tsp
dhaniya jeera pwd - 2 tsp
whole garam masala - 1small stick cinnamon, 2 cloves  and 3 peppercorns
cream - 2 tbs
fresh chopped coriander - to garnish
oil

Method:
Heat oil in a kadhai add the onions stir fry until they turn soft now add 1/2 tsp turmeric,1 tsp of garam masala pwd and 1 tsp of red chilli pwd. Just after 1 min add chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn mushy. Switch off the flame.Let it cool. In the mean time stir fry the Paneer in the same kadhai remove and place on a kitchen towel. Grind the onion, tomato and cashews along with ginger and garlic to a fine paste.
Heat oil add cumin seeds once they sputter add green peas along with remaining turmeric,red chilli pwd and dhaniya jeera pwd sprinkle some water and cook until peas become soft do not cook for long time or else the peas will become hard. Now add the grounded paste mix with the peas and cook until oil leaves the corners. Add Paneer, tomato paste and salt mix well add water according to the requirement of the gravy and let it cook covered for 2 min once its boiled add garam masala pwd and cream check for the seasonings and switch off the flame. Garnish with chopped coriander.
Rich and creamy gravy is ready.
Serve hot with naan,roti, paratha or rice.
