In the Instagram Reels posted by Eitan Bernath, we spotted him cooking the Indian dish with utmost precision. He starts by chopping onions, tomatoes, and paneer. He then heats up a pan, adds a drizzle of ghee, and tosses onions, garlic, ginger, green chillies, and tomatoes in it. After cooking them to perfection, he transfers the mixture to a mixer grinder and transforms it into a mouth-watering sauce. The pan gets another sizzle as Eitan adds a medley of fragrant spices - cumin, turmeric, Kashmiri chilli powder, and coriander powder to the heated ghee. Eitan combines the prepared sauce with a dollop of yoghurt, creating a creamy and tangy base. In the end, he puts the main ingredients - frozen peas and diced paneer - in the pan.
