Nutrition: per serving



  • 250 g Paneer cubed
  • 2 Onions finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1- inch Ginger grated
  • 150 g Yoghurt
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander for garnish


  • In a bowl, whisk the yogurt until smooth and set it aside.
  • Heat the cooking oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  • Add the minced garlic and grated ginger to the pan. Sauté for another 2 minutes until the raw smell disappears.
  • Reduce the heat to low and add the ground cumin, ground coriander, ground turmeric, red chilli powder, and salt. Stir well for 2-3 minutes until the spices are well combined.
  • Add the whisked yogurt to the spice mixture and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the oil separates from the yogurt. This may take around 5-7 minutes.
  • Gently add the cubed paneer to the yogurt and spice mixture. Stir carefully to coat the paneer with the sauce. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the paneer to absorb the flavours.
  • Sprinkle garam masala over the Nawaabi Paneer and give it a final stir.
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with naan or steamed rice.
