2            Tbsp     ghee (clarified butter) or Oil
½            tsp      black mustard seeds
5            tsp      cumin seeds
3            tsp      minced fresh ginger
1-2                   minced hot green chillies
8            large    ripe tomatoes, peeled and diced fine
1            Tbsp     ground coriander
1            tsp      turmeric
½            tsp      ground fennel
½            tsp      garam masala
1            tsp      brown sugar
3            Tbsp     chopped coriander leaves
5            Tbsp     ghee or oil for pan frying paneer
2            cups     cooked fresh or frozen peas
2            cups     whey (from making paneer) or water
2            Tbsp     tomato paste
1½           tsp      salt
8            cups     milk
½- 2/3       cups     lemon juice

1. Put the 8 cups of milk into a large pot on high temperature and stir constantly
until the milk comes to a boil, to avoid burning the milk. Let the milk come to a
full boil, and immediately turn off the temperature and remove the pot from the
heat source. Add ½-2/3 cup of lemon juice (until you see the milk separate into
cheese curds). Drain the contents into a cheese cloth or cheese press, and keep
the whey for later use. Press the cheese curds firmly until most of the moisture
is drained. Let sit for 2 hours.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of ghee or oil in a 5 litre saucepan over moderate heat.
Sauté the

 mustard seeds until you hear them crackle. Add the cumin seeds and allow
them to brown a few shades darker. Add the green chillies and ginger and sauté
momentarily. Add the powdered spices, chopped tomatoes, sugar, and half the
fresh chopped coriander leaves. Partially cover the pot and, stirring
     occasionally, simmer for about 20 minutes or until the tomatoes break down
     and turn pulpy.
     3. While waiting for the tomatoes to break down, heat the 5 tablespoons of ghee
     or oil in a large frying pan on moderate heat. Cut the cheese curd (which should
     be fairly dry and solid) into 1 inch cubes. Pan fry the cheese cubes (paneer) in
     the frying pan until all sides are dark and crispy.
     4. Add the peas and whey (or water) to the tomato and spice mixture. Boil,
     reduce to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and salt and
     mix well. The add paneer (cheese cubes) and simmer for 5 more minutes.
     Before serving, add the remaining herbs (fresh coriander). Serve hot

olive oil. Add the chopped onions. Peal the garlic and with a hand-held cheese grater,
carefully shred the garlic (leave a little off the bottom to avoid contact with grater).
You’ll be left with a garlic paste.
5. Add potatoes to pan. Pour 1 cup of extra-virgin olive oil evenly across the
potatoes. Sprinkle half the mixture of dried spices you prepared earlier on top and
with a large spoon turn the potatoes around. Sprinkle the rest of the spice mix to the
