Method :

Cut the paneer into cube and set aside.

Heat oil in a non-stick pan and temper it with some whole garam Masala.

Add in the onion, ginger,garlic and chilli paste. Saute it for 10 minutes, add in the tomato paste — again saute it for 5 minutes or until the raw smell disappears–

This is the time to add in your cashew and almond paste — reduce the flame otherwise the Masala might stick to the pan–

Add in sugar and salt to taste– pour in some warm water — wait till it comes to a boil add in your paneer cubes —

Cook it for 5 minutes — add in the fresh cream — don’t cook for a long time after paneer is added–

Put off the flame after another 5 minutes — transfer it to a serving bowl and sprinkle some garam Masala powder

Imp note — Don’t add turmeric and red chilli powder in this recipe — we want a nice whitish, creamy colour for this gravy 😊

    No it won’t taste sweet -‘ there should be a balance between salt and sugar — this is not a dessert item 😍😍
