Last week I tried this panner tawa masala recipe and it came out very delicious and paired up with naan.
The recipe I adapted from Taraladalal and slightly tweaked to the ingredients available in my pantry.Now off to the recipe....................

|Green chilly/pachamilgai||2(finely chopped)|

|Coriander leaves(chopped)||as needed|
|Kasoori methi leaves||1/4tsp(optional)|
|Red chilly powder/milgaipodi||1/4tsp|
|Turmeric powder/manjal podi||1/4tsp|
Mix the ingredients given for marinate in a bowl,add the paneer cubes to it and mix it well.Make sure each cube is coated with the marinade.Keep it in a refrigerator 30 minutes.
Heat a pan with 2tsp of oil and shallow fry the marinated paneer cubes till it gets golden and set it aside.Now heat the remaining oil in a pan and saute the onion,green chillies with a pinch of salt till translucent.
Add the ginger&garlic paste an fry it till the raw smell goes off.Once the ginger &garlic paste cooked well add in the chilly and coriander powder,give it a mix.Add in the tomato puree and cook it till the oil separates.
Now add the fried paneer cubes and give it a mix,add 1/2 cup of water to it.Sprinkle the garam masla powder and cook it a medium flame for 3-4 minutes.
Paneer Tawa Masala is ready.
- Here I chopped the onion very finely if you want you can coarsely grind in the blender.
- Instead of cream 3 tbs of milk can be used but adding cream gives rich taste.
- Use thick curd for the marination.
