Restaurant style kadai paneer in 30 mins with a simple hack for making masala.
In a heavy bottom pan heat the oil.
Meanwhile blend the onion, tomato and ginger garlic paste mentioned in masala; in to a smooth mix.
Pour in hot oil. Cook on high flame till the oil separate. If the masala starts to stick at the bottom add a splash of water.
This is an important step, you can't proceed further if you don't see the oil floating on the sides. It means that the masala is cooked.
Now remove the masala from the pan in other plate.
Heat some butter in the same pan. Add the tej patta and moti elichi.
After 10-15 sec add the chopper onion, capsicum and tomato. Sauce them till slightly roasted. I did this on high flame for about a min and a half.
Pour back the masala. Add in the spices and salt.
Finally add the paneer cubes. Let it rest with the masala for 5 mins to absorb the flavored from masala.
Lastly add the 2 tbsp cream. Mix well. Cook for another 1 mins and its done.
Enjoy with roti or paratha.
