Cashew Paneer

It’s a popular dish from North India— and since it is on the sweeter side it is equally loved by both adult and kids —

Since it has nutritional value  and packed with proteins — feel free to make it atleast once or twice a week —-
Thick gravy with some powdered cashew , it has a rich creamy texture — which goes well with roti , paratha , naan or pulao.

Paneer is one of the ingredient that will find a place in my fridge every week while shopping — courtesy my son— ( he loves paneer)—

Main Ingredients:

  • 500 gm of paneer
  • 4 tsp of ginger garlic paste
  • One medium-sized chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp of shah jeera
  • One bay leaf
  • 4 to 5 tsp of powdered cashew
  • 2 tsp of khus khus paste
  • Some whole cashew nuts
  • 1 tsp of  turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp of red chilli powder
  • 2 green chilli paste
  • 2 tsp of cumin powder
  • 1 tsp of garam masala powder
  • 3 tsp of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of cream
  • 4 tbsp of vegetable oil or ghee (clarified butter)
  • Salt to taste


Fry the paneer pieces light golden brown.

Heat oil  add in the sliced onions , ginger garlic paste , khus khus paste and fry for 4 to 5 minutes or till golden brown in colour —  add in the cashew powder and fry for another one minute — turn off the gas

Make a smooth paste of the above .

Again take some oil or  Ghee as per your choice —Ghee will definitely make the dish more tastier–    add in shah jeera and bay leaf , next add in the prepared paste when it start to release its aroma.

Add in  all the dry ingredients  —( turmeric powder, chilli paste , red chilli powder and cumin powder, garam masala powder —)

Saute till it releases oil — pour some warm water if needed in order to prevent the masala getting stuck to the bottom of the pan—

finally add in the paneer pieces and cook till done —

Garnish it with some coriander leaves and fried cashew nuts—
