How to Make Tamato Paneer

  • 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, garam masala and sugar. 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.

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • Chopped coriander leaves, to garnish
