Ingredients for Paneer
  • 2l full cream milk
  • 60ml lemon juice

Add milk to a pot and bring to a boil, then add in lemon juice  and reduce heat to low. Stir in and wait till it curdles.

Use a sieve lined with a muslin cloth (or any clean cloth ) to separate the curd and whey. Allow the curd to drip for 10 minutes. Thereafter fold the cloth over to cover the curd. Place on a flat surface and then place a chopping board on top of it. You may place  a bowl of water on top of  the board to weigh it down to allow more of the whey to be expelled  (for 1-2 hours). Afterwards  remove the paneer gently from the cloth and place into an air tight container. Store in fridge overnight.

Ingredients for sauce

1 onion (sliced)
4 tbsp ghee
1 tsp whole jeera
1 tsp garlic and ginger paste

3 green chillies (cut in half)
3 tbsp fresh cream

1 tsp kasuri methi


Sauté onions in 2 tbsp of ghee along with the salt, cashew nuts and whole jeera until soft and translucent, then add in garlic and ginger paste, diced tomatoes, tomato puree, chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala, coriander and water. Cook on high for 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally, adding water if needed. Then pour into a liquidiser and blend until smooth.

To the same pot add in 2 tbsp ghee, cinnamon, black cardamom, green cardamom, curry leaves and green chillies and toast in the ghee for 1-3 minutes, then add in fresh cream. Mix it in. Then pour in your puree, add  paneer and kasuri methi. Mix in and allow it to boil.
