Paneer Laal Masala
My mom in law read some recipe like this in the newspaper or saw it in a cookery show.. can't remember.. But it was really nice.. proof - the gravy got devoured by the time I took the pic above :)
200 gms paneer cubes
2 medium onions - paste
2 medium tomatoes - paste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp meat masala or any garam masala
1 tbsp fresh cream
1/2 tsp jeera
Salt to taste
The red masala:
4-5 red chillies soaked for an hour (the non spicy ones, may be kashmiri laal mirch)
6-8 cloves of garlic
1 inch piece ginger
Heat some oil and add jeera. When it spluters, add onion paste and cook till light brown, and keep aside.
Then heat 1 tsp oil and cook the red chilli paste till oil seperates.
Add to it the cooked onion paste, the tomato paste and the remaining spices.
Cook till oil seperates. Then add enough water for gravy, salt to taste and bring to boil.
Finally add the paneer pieces, simmer for 5 mintues and serve hot with rotis..
