First we need to prepare the dough. Mix all-purpose flour, a pinch of salt, oil and half of your dahi and knead it. Make a soft dough, pour some oil on top and cover and let it rest for at least 30 mins.
Next we will marinate the paneer, in a bowl add your paneer chunks, 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste, half tsp jeera powder, half tsp dhaniya powder, half tsp salt, some Italian seasoning and the remaining dahi. Mix this and make sure the paneer is coated properly, keep it aside for at least 15 mins.
Now for the sauce, in a pan heat some oil, add chopped onions and 1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste and let it cook until the raw smell is gone.
To this add half tsp jeera powder, half tspn dhaniya powder, some haldi, salt as required and mix everything well.
Next, add the tomato puree and cook until tomato is not raw anymore.
Add 2 tsp cream, bring this to your desired sauce consistency and it’s done.
Now take the dough out, knead for another 2 mins and roll 4 balls out of it.
Spread these balls into small pizzas and pop it in the over until they are brown ad 80% done.
Until the naan is getting ready, sautee or bake your marinated paneer.
In another bowl, mix the cheese and chopped dhaniya and pudina.
