This restaurant-style paneer masala is a great sidedish for Pulao, roti or chapati and also with rice and dal it tastes so good. This is our family favourite and we like to have it mostly with sweet corn pulao or naan.

3.Also grind the tomatoes and add it to the pan.
4. Mix them both well. Cook in medium flame until the oil begins to separate at the top and the raw smell goes off. It took me about 15 mins. Then add salt, ginger garlic paste. Cook until the raw smell of it leaves. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala. Mix well.
