For the Gravy
  1. In a pan/kadai heat 1 Tbsp. of oil. Add in chopped tomato, cashew with 1 cup of water, cover and cook on a medium flame for 10-15 minutes. Cook till tomatoes are soft, stirring occasionally. Switch of the flame and keep aside to cool completely.
  2. Once cooled, blend the tomato mixture into smooth puree. Keep aside.
For preparing Vegetables
  1. Wash and chop the vegetable into preferably equal size & similar shape pieces.
  2. Heat the 3-4 Tbsp. of oil in a deep pan to pan fry vegetable. You can deep fry vegetable or can totally skip frying. I have fried vegetable with very less oil. To the heated oil fry potato, carrot, cauliflower, onion one after one on a medium high flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till the vegetables turn light brown in color. Drain on kitchen paper towel and keep aside
  3. At last fry paneer cubes. Add more oil if required. Keep aside.
  4. Parboil peas and dice capsicum.
