    Paneer Tikka Masala

    75 gm paneer
    100 gm tomato
    25 gm butter
    100 gm cream
    25 gm curd
    2 tsp red chilli powder
    1 tsp jeera powder
    1 tsp garam masala powder
    1 tsp kasuri methi
    1 tsp coriander powder
    1 tsp turmeric powder
    25 gm cashewnuts
    Juice of a lemon
    25 gm mawa
    2 tsp coriander leaves
    200 gm green chillies
    Salt to taste

    For the tandoori masala
    1 cup curd
    3-4 tbsp kaju paste
    1 tbsp red chilli powder
    1 tsp garam masala
    Salt to taste
    Lime juice

    Cube the paneer. Prepare tandoori masala and apply it on the paneer cubes. Roast the paneer in an oven for 2-3 minutes. In a hot kadai, add tomato to melted butter. Add chilli powder, jeera powder, garam masala and kasuri methi. Sauté for a few seconds.

    Add curd and kaju paste. Add cream gradually, as the oil leaves the gravy. Add the roasted paneer to the gravy. Garnish with mawa, cream, chopped coriander leaves and broken kaju pieces. Serve it with hot parathas.
