How to make it

  • Place the paneer in a big bowl. Keep a lid handy and a weight that you can place on top. A heavy book will do fine!
  • Heat a piece of coal on the fire till red hot. Place the hot coal in a small cup of foil in the bowl with the paneer, pour on the ghee on, and quickly shut it with the lid so that minimum fumes escape. Place a weight over the lid, and leave unopened for at least 30 minutes. This will help get a deep, intense smoked flavour.
  • Heat 2 tbsps of oil. Put in chopped onions + capsicum and sauté till onions are pink.
  • Add the turmeric + coriander + parprika. Saute for half a minute.
  • Add the tomato puree + salt, mix well, simmer covered for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, take out the paneer and cut into pieces as desired.
  • Once the tomato curry leaves oil, add the paneer pieces into the curry, mix gently, add the cream + chopped coriander leaves, simmering for 10-15 minutes, until heated through. Do not put on high heat, otherwise the cream might separate.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves, and a swirl of cream if desired.
  • Serve with hot chapattis, parathas, naans or rice.
