Add cubed onions. Sauté until they become translucent and keep them aside.

In the same kadai, add remaining oil/ghee and add cumin seeds.

Let them crackle. Add bay leaves too and sauté.

Now add finely chopped onions and cook until they become transparent.

Add in chopped green chilies and ginger. Sauté for a minute.

Next, add chopped tomatoes and cook until they become soft.

Once they are mashy in texture add in tomato paste and whisked yogurt. Mix everything well.

Add in all the spice powders, kasoori methi, salt and mix them well.

You can add some water to adjust the consistency of gravy.

I have added about half cup of water.

Add in cubed paneer and fried cubed onions and mix them with a gentle stir.

Cover the pan.

Let it cook for about 5-6 minutes.

After that, garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with roti, paratha or rice.
