Paneer Masala..Quick & Easy

This is a very quick,easy & tasty paneer dish without adding any cream or cashewnut paste .It gets ready in a jiffy .I always make this when I want something tasty without doing more effort.I relished this with chapatti but it also taste great with Naan.
If you love the taste of tofu you can add tofu instead of paneer.

200 gms paneer
3 med sized  tomatoes
2 onions
1.5 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 tsp turmeric
1.5  tsp  bottle masala or 1tsp kitchen king powder+ 1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1.5 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp kasoori methi  leaves/dry fenugreek leaves
coriander leaves to garnish.

  • In  mixer put together onions & tomatoes & grind.
  • Heat oil in kadhai, then put cumin seeds.
  • Then  add ginger garlic paste & saute for sometime 
  • Now add the tomato- onion paste and fry well over medium flame for 6-8 min till the oil separates.
  • Put in all powdered masalas & mix well.
  • Add water depending upon the consistency you need.
  • Add salt & cover with the lid .
  • Now add cubed paneer & cook for 3-4 min.
