My family loves Indian food. So I started making it at home and found that it was pretty easy to make something that everyone loves. It's gluten free and vegetarian. You can spice it up or mellow it out, it's all up to you.


Ingredients
 1 lb Paneer - Indian Cheese
 5 medium ripe tomatoes or 1 can crushed tomatoes
 4 cloves garlic
 3 tbsp butter
 ½ tsp chili powder
 1 tsp cumin
 1 tsp tumeric
 2 tbsp garam masala powder
 2 tsp honey
 1 tsp ginger - ground
 2 cups water
 1 cup heavy cream or coconut milk



1

In a Dutch oven add your butter, tomatoes, garlic and spices and water and bring to a simmer 15-20 minutes.

2

Dice the paneer into thick cubes and add to your tomato mixture and add your honey and let that simmer for 10 minutes on a low to medium heat.

3

Add cream and stir gently. If it is too spicy, add more cream. On a low simmer let it rest 5 minutes.

I love this with rice or naan. But be creative and make it your own!
