100g Essential Cuisine South Indian Style Seasoning

250g vegan yoghurt

For The Sauce:

90g rapeseed oil

8 green cardamons, bruised

4 cloves

2 bay leaves

2 large onions, finely chopped

50g ginger and garlic paste

  1. Place the paneer in a large bowl with the oil, ginger & garlic paste, salt, lemon juice and Essential Cuisine South Indian Style Seasoning mix gently to coat. Set aside for 15 minutes then stir in the yoghurt. Leave to marinate while you make the sauce.

  2. In a large saucepan, heat the oil until hot. Toss in the cardamom pods, cloves and bay leaves, sizzle for 30 seconds. Add the onions and fry for a further 3 minutes until soft. Stir in the ginger and garlic paste.

  3. Fry for another 30 seconds, stirring. Add the tomatoes, water & cashew paste. Bring to a simmer and cook until the onion and tomatoes break down into a thick sauce. Using a hand blender blitz until smooth.

  4. Return the sauce to the heat and stir in the Essential Cuisine South Indian Style Seasoning and fresh chilli. Let the sauce come to a gentle simmer and add the paneer, peas and cream.

  5. Cook for a further 5 minutes until the cheese is hot, stir in the lemon juice.
