I made this dish more than a month ago for Holi.The plan was to make matar paneer for the holi party but I couldnt get to the grocery store in time and decided to make do with what I had so Tomato paneer came up instead.It turned out super and was very well appreciated :)
3 large Tomatoes (ground into puree)
1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
2 tsp Coriander Powder
3/4 tsp Tumeric
Salt to taste
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp Cumin seeds for seasoning
2 tbsp Oil
1/2 lb Paneer (cut into cubes)
Coriander leaves to garnish
This is how you make it :
In a Pan heat the oil & season with cumin seeds.
Add ginger garlic paste and saute, then add the tomato puree .Follow this up with all the dry spices & stir to combine.Saute till the paste is cooked and leaves the edges of the pan .Now add the cubed paneer, covering it nicely with the tomato and spice puree. Add water approximately so that gravy has medium consistency.Cover with a lid and let it cook for a few minutes.The paneer is now cooked.Keep it covered for a bit so that the paneer imbibes all the flavors thoroughly.
Garnish with chopped corriander leaves and serve hot over Rice/pulao or Roti's.
