How to Make Paneer in milky gravy

  • Cut the paneer into squares (not too thin).
  • Rub with salt and half of the crushed black peppers. Set aside for 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Heat a flat tawa and grease it with a little oil.
  • Grill the paneer pieces lightly. Make sure they do not turn brown.
  • Blanch the almonds, cashews (skin the almonds) and make a smooth paste with it.
  • Similarly, make poppy seed paste too.
  • Heat oil in a kadai, add whole jeera and let it splutter.
  • Add the poppy seed paste, fry for some time and then add the almond-cashew paste. Stir for 2-3 minutes on med-low heat.
  • Now add the rest of the crushed black pepper, saute, and add milk.

  • Serve hot with peas-pulao / plain rice/ jeera rice/ semolina parantha, etc.
