The trick is to let the paneer and masala stick for a few seconds each time before moving it on the tava. This gives it both its name and flavour.
Ingredients
  • 250 gms paneer (cottage cheese), cut into small pieces
  • 2 tomatoes , finely chopped
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder
  • a few drops lemon juice (optional)
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
  • For the garnish
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped corriander (dhania)
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a tava on a high flame. Add the cumin seeds and fry for a few seconds. When they become brown, add the onion and fry again for a while.
  2. Add the paneer and tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. While cooking, add the turmeric, chilli powder and salt. If the paneer sticks to the bottom, scrape with a spatula. Repeat again every time it sticks to the bottom until the paneer gets soft.
  3. Scrape the paneer from the tava into a bowl and garnish with the green chilli and coriander.
  4. Serve hot.
  5. If you like, add a few drops of lemon juice.
