Spicy paneer

So, mustard greens are out of season and I still had a chunk of paneer in my fridge. With a little bit of improvisation, it turned into a rather tasty spicy paneer dish.

8 oz paneer
28 oz crushed tomatoes
1 yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp ginger paste
2 tbsp tandoori marinade
1 tsp cayenne
0.25 tsp turmeric
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp sugar
0.25 tsp cinnamon
0.5 tbsp garam masala
handful of fresh cilantro

Mince the onion and saute in a tbsp of vegetable oil. Add the crushed garlic and the ginger paste. Sautee for 30 seconds.

Add the spices and sautee for a minute, make sure they do not burn. Pour in the canned tomato. Simmer for 20 minutes. Blend until smooth.

Add in the chunks of paneer and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt. Serve over steamed rice with minced cilantro.
