Serves: 2 to 3 persons
Time: 25 to 30 minutes

methi paneer, paneer recipe, methi malai matar, indian curry recipesIngredients:
1 big bunch of Methi, washed and picked
150 gram paneer, small cubes (Tip)
1 small onion, sliced lengthwise
1 medium tomato, medium cubes
1/2 inch ginger
3 to 4 big garlic cloves, roughly chopped
2-3 Black pepper
1 tbsp plain yogurt
1/2 cup cream (Tip)
Tempering: 1 + 1 tbsp Oil, pinch of turmeric
1 tsp Coriander powder
Salt to taste

Method:
1) Heat 1 tbsp oil into a pan. Add black pepper, ginger, garlic and onion. Saute till onion turns translucent. Add tomato and cook till tomato becomes mushy. Let this mixture cool down. Puree without adding water.
2) Finely chop methi leaves. Heat oil into a pan. Add turmeric and methi leaves. Also add 2-3 pinches of salt. Cook uncovered until water content of methi leaves evaporate.
3) Now add tomato- onion puree and yogurt. Stir well and cook for few minutes. Add little more salt and coriander powder.
4) Turn the heat to low (Tip). Add paneer and cream. Also add some water to get the desired consistency. Cook for few minutes.
Serve hot with Chapati, Naan or any Indian bread.

Tips:
1) When using store bought paneer, cut them into cubes and immerse into hot water. Drain the water after 2 minutes. This way, paneer becomes soft.
2) Incase, the cream is unavailable, mix 1/2 cup milk powder to 1/4 cup water without any lumps.
3) Do not add cream when flame is high. High flame will curdle the cream (when mixed with salt).
