Kaju Paneer is a very quick dish to make and it tastes so creamy and its not that heavy too if you use milk. For better taste yes cream would be the best choice but for healthy purposes I use milk.

250 gms paneer, cubed
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (optional)
1 cup Capsicum (Any Color), cut into 1/2 inch squares
2 tbsp powdered cashewnuts
2 tbsp kasturi methi
2 cups milk or cream
salt to taste

Grind to a Paste
1 onion
1 inch ginger
3-4 pods garlic
2 green chilies


  1. Heat oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds, once the splutter add the onion paste and cook till the raw smell goes. You do not want to change the color much since that would change the color of the gravy and we want it white in color. But even if the color changes dont worry it still tastes good.
  2. Add the capsicum and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Mix the cashews in 1 cup milk and add it to the mixture.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add the paneer, salt and kasturi methi.
  6. Add more milk and bring to a boil.
  7. Serve immidiately.
  8. This gravy tends to thicken as time goes by, just add more milk and bring to a boil just before serving.
