A little modification - the result follows
Paneer - 250gm - cut to cubes.
Capsicum - 1 small - cut to 4-6 pieces

Garam masala powder - 1tsp
Coriander powder - 1tsp
Cashew nuts - 5-6
Almonds - 6 ( soak a while)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Chilie powder - to taste

Sauté onions till brown.
Grind along with cashew, soaked almond to fine paste.
Heat oil in a wok.
Add the paneer and capsicum , sauté , the paneer will get slightly brown too.
Add the ground paste, ginger garlic paste - fry awhile
Add tomato purée.
Add water sufficient to cook the capsicum and also to form a gravy.
Add salt, coriander powder, chillie and garam masala powder.
Simmer till done.
