Step-by-step instructions to cook

Prep

1

Combine onion, tomatoes, Kashmiri chillies, green chilli, ginger, garlic, cinnamon, cloves, green cardamom, black cardamom, bay leaf, cashews, butter, water, and salt in a heavy-bottomed pan, ensuring the ingredients are fully submerged.

2

Cover and cook over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes.

3

Open the pan, remove and discard the cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and bay leaf.

4

Once cooled, transfer the vegetables to a mixer jar and grind them into a smooth puree or paste.

Cooking

1

In a pan, melt butter and mix in the red chilli powder.

2

Strain the prepared puree into the pan in small batches.

3

Add paneer to the gravy just before it starts boiling and cook for five minutes.

4

Then, add fresh cream, crushed kasoori methi, powdered garam masala, salt, and sugar. Gently mix.

5

Let it cook to absorb flavours, and when ready, turn off the flame and serve hot.
