1.5 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp coriander seeds

STEPS TO FOLLOW-
Crush the coriander and cumin seeds in a bowl. Now sauté the crushed seeds in hot oil for few seconds.
Add chopped green chilli and onions and let them cook about 2-3 minutes on a low-medium flame. Saute until they turn golden brown.
It’s time to cook tomatoes in the mixture for 3-4 mins. Now pour the other ingredients like garam masala, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt, mix well and cook till the masalas are not raw anymore. You can add 1 tbsp of water in this mixture.
Time to bring the main hero of the dish i.e ‘Paneer’. Smash the paneer into fine pieces and put it into the saute masala. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Do not cook paneer for too long or else it’ll get chewier.
Turn off the heat and season the dish. You can also garnish it with fresh chopped coriander leaves.
