Ingredients list for Paneer Makhni

  • 200 grams Paneer (cottage cheese)


  1. Cut the paneer into thick slices. Heat two teaspoons oil in a non-stick pan. Add green cardamoms, cloves, cinnamon, garlic and ginger and sauté till fragrant.
  2. Add green chillies and continue to sauté. Cook tomato puree in another non-stick pan with salt till it reduces slightly. Add this to the ginger-garlic masala and cook.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a grill pan and place the paneer slices on it. Sprinkle some salt and red chilli powder and grill, turning sides once, till both the sides are golden.
  4. Add coriander leaves to the tomato gravy and mix. Add salt, remaining red chilli powder, garam masala powder, kasoori methi and honey and mix well.
  5. Once the paneer pieces are well grilled, take them off the pan and cut into cubes. Add these cubes to the gravy and mix. Just before serving add milk and mix. Serve hot with chapatti.
