Methi Matar Paneer - Vidya Nayak Shenoy

Paneer - 200 gms
Small Methi leaves - 1 small bunch
Green peas - 1/4 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp
Ginger - 1' inch size
Big Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
Fresh cream - 1/4 cup

To grind:
Kasa Kasa/poppy seeds - 2 tsp's
Cashews - 5
Ghee - 1/4 tsp
Cardamom - 2
Cinnamon stick - 1/2 ' inch
Onion - 1
Green Chilly - 2

Soak the kasa kasa and cashews in warm water for about 30 minutes. Heat a pan, add ghee, cinnamon stick and cardamom. then add sliced onions and green chilly. saute them till the onions turn pinkish.
Cool the saute onions and grind it along with soaked kasa kasa and cashew into a thick paste.

In a pan, heat 1 tsp of ghee, add finely chopped ginger and onions. saute them well. Add methi leaves and saute it till it is cooked, it just takes less than a minute to get saute. (when i made, i forgot to saute methi leaves, so i added later after adding grounded paste and water. it cooked in 2- 3 minutes)

Now add the Grounded paste and 1/2 a cup of water to the pan. give a good stir. add the green peas and Paneer. let it get cooked in slow flame for about 2 - 3 minutes.

Finally add in the fresh cream and give a mix and remove the pan from flame.
I've skipped on the fresh cream part. Taste was just too good..mild , creamy gravy
