I could not have made this recipe any simpler! Ready in 30 minutes.
If you want to make your own homemade Paneer, use this recipe.

4 medium/small onions
sunflower/vegetable/rapeseed oil
2 large tomatoes, roughly chopped
A thumb-sized piece of ginger, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
5 tbsp natural yoghurt
300g paneer, chopped into large cubes
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp salt
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tbsp fenugreek leaves
1 tsp honey

– Add 2-3 tbsp oil to a large pan and heat. Add cumin seeds and onion and cook for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.

– Add the ginger, garlic and let sizzle for another minute.

– Add the tomatoes, and 100ml of boiled water. Stir through, cover and cook on low heat for another 10 minutes.

– Add salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala, and fenugreek leaves, and mix through.

– Turn the heat off and add 100ml or room temperature water. Add the yoghurt whilst the heat is off.

– Turn up the heat, add the honey and cook for a further 10 minutes.

– Add the paneer, mix well, and cook for another 5 minutes.

– If you like, you can serve with some roughly chopped, fresh coriander on top.

You can then serve this with Onion Pilau, Plain Rice, or Chapatis.
