Serves 4 as a main, or 6-8 as a side dish



Heat 1cm oil in a large frying pan and fry the paneer in batches until golden brown – watch out as the oil spits. Scoop it on to kitchen paper.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and gently fry the coriander seeds, ginger, chilli and onion for about 8- 10 minutes until golden. Tip in the tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes until they start to soften. Add the other spices and honey, stir and simmer for a few minutes.

Tip the paneer into the sauce and stir. Simmer for a few minutes, then add the chopped coriander and shredded ginger. Serve sprinkled with peppers and spring onions.
