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 Bunch of methi leaves (roughly chopped)

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

2-3 big cloves of garlic roughly chopped

1' ginger chopped

1 small onion sliced

1 cup cubed Paneer

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
  • Heat the remaining oil in a kadai add cumin seeds when it splutters add garlic, ginger, sliced onion and fry for a while now add red chilli powder, haldi, garam masala, coriander powder.
  • Now add the chopped methi and fry for a while then add the chopped tomatoes fry till tomatoes gets mashed now add fried paneer.
  • Lastly add the cream and serve with Parathas.
