    Paneer Butter Masala………..without onion or garlic.

    White pumpkin 1 cup
    Red pumpkin 2/3 cup
    Tomato puree 2/3 cup
    Paneer 100 gms
    Dry masala
    Red chilly powder 2 tsp or to taste
    Dhania powder 2 tsp
    Jeera powder 1 tsp
    Amchur powder 1 tsp
    Turmeric powder 1 tsp
    Hing 1 tsp

    Kasoothi methi
    Coriander leaves
    Garam masala powder
    Last but not the least Butter
    Oil
    Salt to taste.

    Sauté the grated red pumpkin in oil for some time and then add the white pumpkin and sauté both together, then add water, if necessary and cook till both get cooked well, cool and grind to paste, you can add a few cashews along with the pumpkin before grinding.
    This forms a gravy without onion.
    In a pan add oil and add jeera, then add all the dry ingredients and stir well till it emits good aroma, then add grated ginger. Now add ground paste and then tomato puree and blend all together. Add salt to taste and cook till it comes to a boil, now add cubed paneer and mix well, see that paneer pieces do not break. Garnish with garam masala powder, kasoothi methi, finely chopped coriander leaves and a dash of butter.
    Serve hot with rotis, polkas or parathas.
    Happy cooking.
