    Making Tawa Paneer

    • Take a tawa and melt the butter on it. In case, you don't have a tawa, you can use a frying pan.
    • Next add carom seeds and fry till aromatic.
    • Now add chopped onions and saute till they turn translucent.
    • Add ginger-garlic paste and chopped green chilies into the sauteed onions.
    • Next add chopped capsicum and saute for 3 minutes. Make sure to keep the flame low-medium.
    • Next add turmeric, red chili and coriander powder. Mix well.
    • Now add garam masala powder and dry mango powder.
    • Mix and saute well for one minute.
    • Add tomato puree. Stir well and then add salt as per your taste.
    • Stir and saute well, till butter starts releasing from the sides of the masala. You will also find that the mixture starts thickening well.
    • In case, the tomato and spices mixture become a bit dry, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of water into the masala.
    • Now it is time to add the paneer cubes into the masala. While yu add the paneer cubes, make sure you mix them gently and evenly. This way the masala will coat each paneer cube uniformly.
    • Once the paneer cubes and the masala are well mixed, turn off the flame.
    • Add crushed dry fenugreek leaves and stir gently.
    • Garnish the Tawa Paneer with chopped coriander leaves and lemon wedges.
    • Serve hot with naan, roti or paratha.
