Tomato Paneer


1 tsp zeera

1 star anise

1 Tbsp olive oil

1/2 Tbsp ginger-garlic paste

1 1/2 cups tomato puree

1/2 capsicum, diced

1 cup paneer, cut into medium sized cubes

Salt, to taste

1-2 tsp sugar

1 tsp garam masala

1/4 cup milk

Chopped coriander leaves, to garnish


In a pan add olive oil, zeera, star anise, ginger-garlic paste.

Add the diced capsicum. Saute for 1 minute. (You can saute it for longer in case you do not like your capsicum too crunchy.)

Add tomato puree. Add salt,sugar and garam masala . Cook till it leaves oil on the sides.

Add milk. Mix well. Add the paneer cubes. Let it cook for 2 minutes on low flame. Do not over cook the milk as it can curdle.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve.

Note: Paneer cubes can be grilled on a non-stick tawa till light brown before adding to the base. You can also add a split green chilli to increase the heat of the dish in step number 3.
