Creamy Methi Paneer


This is my version of methi paneer which goes very well with parathas and its got a creamy texture which just melts in your mouth and the bitterness of methi goes of completely with just the addition of cream which is very healthy for children as well.

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

2-3 big cloves of garlic roughly chopped

1' ginger chopped

1 small onion sliced

1 small tomato roughly chopped

1/2 tsp red chilli powder

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1/2 tsp garam masala

1/2 tsp coriander powder

1 tbsp cream

salt to taste

2 tbsp oil

  • Heat 1 tsp oil in a nonstick pan and shallow fry the paneer cubes till golden brown on both the sides and then keep aside
