Tamatar Cut Aur Paneer.

This is one of those recipes that just happened in my mind and now I use tamatar cut with paneer , fish and even potatoes - goes great with eggs too , so let your imagination run wild and use up what you have in the fridge . There are no fixed quantities - go with the flow ! We make this tamatar cut as a side dish . Tastes great with plain rice or on its own with roti - make it sweet or spicy , you are the boss of the dish .

Tamatar Cut.

250 Grams Onions - Peel and slice thickly
500 Grams Tomatoes - Puree half and cut half in chunks.
1 Teaspoon kilonji - at times I use Rai seeds or even Jeera.
2 Tablespoons Sliced Ginger - 1/2 " long.
2 Tablespoons Garlic - Roughly Chopped .
Lots of Whole Red/Green Chilies.
Curry Putta.
1 Tablespoon Sugar.
2 Teaspoons Kashmiri Mirchi.
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice.
Heat oil , splutter seeds . Add curry putta , ginger and garlic and whole chilies - cook till garlic becomes soft , maybe 2 minutes, next add the tomato puree , cook 2-3 minutes covered and then add the rest of the ingredients , gently mix , cook covered on low till tomatoes and onions begin to loose shape.That's it - your tamatar cut is ready.
Now you are the boss - so if you wish , serve this as is , or take 250 Grams cubed paneer , lightly saute for 5 minutes in some oil along with salt and chili powder - don't add any other masalas, then add the tamatar cut , cook another 5 minutes to marry flavors .Delicious !
