Paneer Tawa Masala

Sometimes we completely forget certain spices since a long in our pantry, which we usually dont even think about those leftover spice powders while cooking, whenever i plan to go to Indian groceries, i'll go through my pantry to check wat i should pick while shopping, this time when i went through my pantry and my freezer, i found a bottle full of kasuri methi, ajwain seeds and few frozen paneer chunks..While browsing, i saw this beautiful paneer tawa masala at Jeyashri's blog, immediately the colour and simplicity of this dish attracted me a lot and i tried this paneer tawa masala for our dinner to serve along with rotis..Wat a delicious masala this dish is, u know even my H who doesnt like that much these sort of masala enjoyed having twice with his rotis, i followed exactly the same process as Jeyashri went for and we loved this delicious masala, thanks to Jeyashri for sharing this fabulous paneer dish..Sending to Jay's Letz Relishh-Paneer.

Paneer Tawa Masala

2cups Paneer (cubed)
1tbsp Kasturi methi
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Chilli powder
1/2tbsp Chaat masala
1/2tsp Cumin seeds + Ajwain seeds
2nos Onions (chopped)
2nos Garlic cloves (crushed)
1/2tsp Coriander powder
3/4cup Tomato puree (prepared with 5 ripen tomatoes)
3tbsp Fresh cream
1/2tsp Garam masala
Oil
Coriander leaves (chopped)

Marinate the cubed paneer with chilli powder, chaat masala, salt and turmeric powder with few drops of oil (i added few drops of oil, thats the way the paneer get well coated with the spices)..keep them aside half an hour...

Heat few tsp of oil and fry the marinated paneer cubes until they turns brown on both side, keep aside..Heat enough oil in the same kadai, let splutters the cumin and ajwain seeds, add the crushed garlic cloves followed by chopped onions, saute everything well until the onions turns transculent..now add the coriander, tomato puree and bring everything to boil, cook until the oil get separates from the gravy..Add the already fried paneer cubes and garam masala to the gravy, cook for few minutes, finally add the cream, give a stir..add the chopped coriander leaves and put off the stove..

Enjoy with rotis..
