  • Warm the flour tortillas slightly and set aside until further use. Heat the ghee in a pan and temper the cumin seeds. Once they begin to splutter, add the crushed ginger and garlic.
  • As the aromas are released, add the chopped onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes, until lightly browned. Add the chopped tomato, followed by a pinch of salt and cook until the tomatoes turn mushy in their own moisture.
  • Add all the spice powders and black pepper and stir in thoroughly. Cook further for 2-3 minutes, until the spices lose their raw smell before crumbling in the paneer. Season with salt and mix everything well to combine.
  • Add a tablespoon of water to let the flavours seep into the paneer and cover with a lid to cook for an additional five minutes, until the paneer has absorbed the flavours of the vegetable base.
  • Pile on to the waiting warm rotis followed by shredded cheese and lots of chopped coriander for garnish. Serve warm with extra cheese and hot sauce on the side.
