Creamy Paneer Cashew

Well, this is my own recipe which I initially started making with 'Khoya' in India. When I came to US, khoya was not easily available and I started making it with whipping cream. One day I did not have whipping cream and I used evaporated milk and every time this recipe came out fantastic. In fact, if you have none of the above, then you can just use milk instead of water and you will still have great taste.


1 lb Paneer cut in rectangular pieces
handful of cashews soaked in water
1/4 cup whipping cream/evaporated milk/ khoya
1 onion
1 tomato
2 tbsp oil
1/2 inch ginger
1/2 cup green peas.
2-3 green chillies
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt as per taste
coriander leaves to garnish

In a blender grind onion, tomato, green chilli and ginger. Keep aside. In the same blender grind soaked cashews, keep them aside.
In a pan heat oil. Add cumin seeds. Put grind onion, tomato, chiili, ginger paste.
When it is well fried, add turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and garam masala.
Now add Cashews and whipping cream. Add water and green peas. When boiling add Paneer. Keep on sim for 5-8 minutes and paneer is ready. This goes best with garlic naan.
