Recipe: Paneer Makhani - Cottage Cheese

I made Paneer Makhani the other day at a dinner for friends. As usual when cooking for dinners, I keep forgetting to take pictures. Hubsnad took this picture after people had finished eating, so its not the best of pics, but it does give you an idea of consistency which is why I'm including it here.

Puree 1 kilo tomatoes.

In a pan give seasoning with 1-2 cardamom, 3-4 cloves, 2 slit green chillies, 1"inch ginger chopped fine. Add the tomato puree and keep sauteeing till cooked.

Powder 1 handful of cashewnuts and add it to the cooked tomatoes. Stir well.

Add 1/2 kilo of chopped paneer and give it a quick steam. (Don't overcook it, the paneer will turn rubbery)

Add 2 tsp cream (you can use more) and stir into the curry.

Sprinkle 2 pinches of Kasuri Methi on top (optional)

Serve hot with rotis.

Lovely...if using a ready made tomato puree , this is the quickest crowd pleaser .

Even i forget taking pictures when i am entertaining guests.

When cooking for guests, there are just so many things going on simultaneously, that its quite a bother to keep washing my hands to be able to take pictures. :)
