Here’s a rich and creamy paneer dish made with MTR Rasoi Magic No Onion No Garlic Paneer Makhanwala spice mix that is a huge hit with kids… even the picky eaters devour this in no time. As you can see from the photo, my 5-year-old daughter Esther absolutely loves it!
2 tbsp oil
500g paneer, cut in cubes
3 tbsp butter
5 cashew nuts
4 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp salt, or to taste
5 tbsp Rasoi Magic No Onion No Garlic Paneer Makhanwala spice mix
1 tsp sugar or honey
1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves (Kasuri Methi)
½ cup fresh cream
Heat oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the paneer for a few minutes on both sides until they turn slightly brown. Remove onto kitchen towel and set aside.
Heat 1 tbsp butter in the same pan, add the cashew nuts and saute for a couple of minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes, salt and spice mix and cook until the tomatoes are soft and mushy.
Remove from heat and cool the tomato spice mixture and blend into a fine paste by adding water if required.
Add the remaining butter to the same pan and add the pureed tomato spice mixture and bring it to a boil. Add sugar, dried fenugreek leaves, cream and mix well. Check seasoning and remove from heat.
Serve with roti or steamed rice.
