- Coat paneer cubes in salt, turmeric, red chilly powder and fry them in oil on low flame.
- Heat some oil in a kadai and add all the spices. Cook until the raw smell disappears.
- Next, add the tomato puree to our gravy followed by some water. Cover with lid and allow it took for some minutes until oil starts to separate.
- Time for paneer to go in the gravy and garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
- Coat 200g Paneer cubes in salt, turmeric, and red chilly powder. Fry them in 1tbsp oil on low flame for around 2 mins and keep aside.
- In the new Avias Triply frypan, heat 2 tbsp oil and add all the whole spices once heated: garlic cloves, cinnamon, and a half tbsp cumin seeds. As soon as they start spluttering add 2 finely chopped onions and sauté until golden brown. The pan is curated specifically with low oil consumption. Now add 1 chopped green chilly and ½ tbsp ginger-garlic paste and let it cook until the raw smell disappears.
- Next, add ½ tbsp Kashmiri chili powder, ½ tbsp turmeric powder, 1 tbsp coriander powder, and ½ tbsp cumin powder, and let it all mix on low flame. The Avias Triply frypan distributes heat evenly making your food cook faster. Isn’t that cool?
- Moving on, make a puree of 2 tomatoes and add it to our gravy followed by some salt. Cover it with a lid and cook till oil separates. Add 2 tbsp whisked curd and mix well (Optional). Pour some water and cook for 3-4 minutes.
- Add the paneer cubes to this gravy along with 1 tbsp Kasuri Methi, ½ tbsp garam masala, and mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
You can savour it with hot rotis/ phulkas or even naan. At my place, we also like to eat paneer tikka gravy with jeera rice, tastes amazing. Adding some yoghurt/ curd is completely optional and depends on your taste buds but if you are someone who likes a little spicy food then the dish is perfect for you.
