My husband has this habit off telling me 1 hour before that he is getting a friend for lunch. So this dish was made with the few ingredients I had in the fridge, I did not have enough paneer, nor mushrooms so the combo. the gravy is the usual sindhi style onion tomato gravy, I just added some cashews this time.

1/2 cup paneer, cut in cubes
1 cup muchrooms, quartered
1 capsicum, cut in cubes
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
2 green chilies
1 inch ginger
3-4 garlic pods
1 tbsp chopped cashews, soaked in milk for 1 hour
1/4 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp kissan tandoori masala (optional)
pinch turmeric powder
1-2 cups Milk
salt to taste
fresh coriander leaves for garnish


  1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan.
  2. Add the onions and fry them till they turn light brown.
  3. Then add the tomatoes, ginger, garlic and green chilies and cook till the oil separates.
  4. Remove from heat and cool.
  5. Grind the onion tomato mixture, with the cashews to a smooth paste.
  6. Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan.
  7. Add the mushrooms, cook till the water evaporates. Cook on a high flame.
  8. Reduce the flame to medium high, add the capsicum and fry for another 5 minutes.
  9. Add the coriander powder, red chili powder and turmeric powder. Cook for a minute.
  10. Add the ground masala and cook till the oil separates.
  11. Add milk, tandoori masala and salt.
  12. Add the paneer pieces.
  13. Bring to a boil.
  14. Garnish with coriander leaves.
  15. Serve immediately with rotis/parathas.
