 Paneer- 8 cubes
 Red Onion-1
 Corriander Leaves- a fistfull
 Turmeric powder- a pinch
 Chilli Powder- 1 spoon
 Butter-4 spoons

Fry the Paneer in Tava.  need not add oil here to fry. frying it for few minutes will do. need not fry them on all sides. leave the fried paneer aside.

In a kadai, add oil and heat it. now add sliced onions fry it add sliced tomatoes fry it and add washed corriander leaves. fry them well. they should be transparent. now add little turmeric powder and salt. let them cool. grind them into a paste. (when corriander leaves are can feel a nice smell..too sustain that smell..keap the kadai closed till it is done and cooled).

In a kadai. add oil, heat it and add the grinded paste. let them fried and add chilli powder. now mix well and add butter. leave the gravy in slow flame by closing it with a lid for 5 mins atleast. after 5 mins add the fried paneer cubes and mix well.
