4.Ginger garlic paste-1tsp
9.Poppy seeds-1 1/2tbsp
12.Cinnamon,cloves, cardamom- 2 each
1.Combine 3 to 11 in a blender and make a fine paste.
2. Heat oil in a pan, add sugar and leave it undisturbed, until it caramelises. Add the whole spices, finely chopped onions, saute for a while until it changes colour, add the ground mixture.
3.Once the gravy begins to boil, add paneer cut into cubes, salt and reduce the heat and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until it is done. Serve with a dollop of fresh cream, garnished with coriander leaves.
1.Use butter instead of oil and add kasuri methi(dry fenugreek leaves).
2.This is the simplest version of making Paneer butter masala, which i came out with . After eating this in a restaurant i tried it, just by guessing the ingredients from the taste of it and it turned out pretty good. I did not use butter or kasuri methi but that is just a suggestion to enhance the flavour.
