The trick is to let the paneer and masala stick for a few seconds each time before moving it on the tava. This gives it both its name and flavour.

Makes 4 servings
- Heat the oil in a tava on a high flame. Add the cumin seeds and fry for a few seconds. When they become brown, add the onion and fry again for a while.
- Add the paneer and tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. While cooking, add the turmeric, chilli powder and salt. If the paneer sticks to the bottom, scrape with a spatula. Repeat again every time it sticks to the bottom until the paneer gets soft.
- Scrape the paneer from the tava into a bowl and garnish with the green chilli and coriander.
- Serve hot.
- If you like, add a few drops of lemon juice.
