[personal profile] kaberett
The recipe I use by default, which I am rewriting here so that the tweaks I make are included and it's all in the order I want to do things.

150g paneer
fresh or frozen peas To Taste
1 large onion, minced
~1 tsp equivalent minced ginger and garlic
3 medium tomatoes (or equivalent -- one tin of chopped tomatoes seems to be good)
~1/3rd of a mug of cashews
whole spice:
- 3/4 tsp cumin seed
- bay leaf
ground spice (in a ramekin, Alex):
- 1/4 tsp turmeric
- 2 tsp coriander powder
- 1 tsp garam masala

Pour boiling water into the cashew-mug sufficient to just cover. Set aside to soak for ~15 minutes. Make up the various spice mixes in ramekins so you don't have to faff later. While that's going on...

Cube the paneer. Fry in a little oil until browning up nicely, if that is your thing. While that's going on...

Finely mince the onion/garlic/ginger. (Or do this first if you are not confident chopping rapidly, probably.)

Once the paneer is done, decant into a kitchen-towel-lined bowl. Is there enough oil in the pan? Good. In go the jeera and the bay leaf. (Decant the cashews into the mortar & pestle and start grinding them. Yes, you CAN do it in the food processor, but it won't be as nice.) Once they're fragrant etc, add in the onions, followed by the garlic/ginger.

Once the onions are adequately browned, add the tomatoes (chopped!) and dry spices; cook until the tomatoes have gone properly oozy.

Add cashew nut paste & cook until it doesn't taste of raw cashew (a few minutes).

Add cheese and peas; mix well.

Add water to desired thickness of sauce; let simmer (while the rice cooks or you prep chapathi too late or whatever); serve.
