Serves: 3-4

Ingredients:
Paste:
2 Onion medium-sized
2 Tomatoes large sized
2 Green Chilly
1 inch Ginger
5-6 Garlic Cloves
2 Green Cardamom
6-8 Cashew Nuts

Gravy:
3 Tbsp Ghee/Oil
200 gm Paneer Cubes
1 Cup Green Peas (fresh or frozen)
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 Bay Leaf
1 inch Cinnamon Stick
1-2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala Powder
1 tsp Kasuri Methi
1 Tbsp Fresh Cream
1/2 tsp Sugar
3/4 Cup Water (adjust to the thickness required)
Salt To taste

Directions:
1. Blend all the ingredients under 'Paste' to a fine paste and keep aside.
2. Soak paneer cubes in warm water.
3. Heat Ghee/Oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot add  Cumin Seeds, bay leaf, cinnamon, and saute for 10 seconds.
4. Add ground masala paste [from Step 1] and saute on Medium Flame.
5. Add Red chilli powder, Turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt, and keep sauteing on low - medium flame.
6. Cook until masalas leave oil. It will take around 15 minutes. Keep adding little water if masala turns dry.
7. Now add Green Peas and Water and bring it to boil and cook until peas are cooked.
8. Add the remaining ingredients except paneer [Garam Masala Powder, Kasuri Methi, Fresh Cream, Sugar] and cook for 2 minutes.
9. Finally add the Paneer cubes and cook for 2-3 minutes.
10. Garnish with Coriander Leaves and enjoy with Indian Breads or Rice.

Notes:
1.Gravy will thicken a bit once cooled. So add the water to the thickness required at step 7.[I used 3/4 - 1 Cup]
