Panner Curry

What you need:
250 grams paneer, cut into small pieces
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder
a few drops lemon juice (optional)
3 tablespoons oil
salt to taste
For the garnish
1 green chilli, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped coriander

1. Heat the oil in a tava on a high flame. Add the cumin seeds and fry for a few seconds. When they become brown, add the onion and fry again for a while.
2. Add the paneer and tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. While cooking, add the turmeric, chilli powder and salt. If the paneer sticks to the bottom, scrape with a spatula. Repeat again every time it sticks to the bottom until the paneer gets soft.
3. Scrape the paneer from the tava into a bowl and garnish with the green chilli and coriander.
4. Serve hot.
5. If you like, add a few drops of lemon juice.
