2 inch size cinnamon stick
1 mace blade or pinch of powder
1/4 tsp crushed nutmeg or powder
2 green cardamom pods or pinch of powder
2 cloves or pinch of powder
8-10 black peppercorn seeds
1 cup of onion, finely chopped (2 medium size)

1 tbsp ginger, minced or paste

1 green chilli /serrano pepper, finely chopped (adjust the spice as required)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper powder (optional: adjust the spice as required)
1 tsp fenugreek dry leaves
2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), finely chopped

1. Potato: parboil baby potatoes (boil for 5 minutes on medium heat)
2. Paneer/Tofu: cut in cubes & set it aside
3. Chop the onions, garlic, ginger & green chilli as per the list
4. Keep all the other ingredients ready as per above list
1 x deep frying pan/sauce pan with a lid
1 x stirring spoon

1. Cooking pot: a deep frying pan/wok with a lid. It should be minimum of 3 inches deep
2. Neutral oil: any one of below oil can be used for this recipe (peanut, sunflower, canola, vegetable)
3. Ghee can be used for this recipe, if available
4. Spices: ground spices can be used instead of whole spices & seeds
4. Onions: red onions are recommended
5. Green chilli: index finger size with seeds or without seeds (adjust the spice as required)
6. Use kashmiri red chilli powder instead of Cayenne pepper powder, if you prefer mild curry (kashmiri red chilli powder is high in colour and less in heat). I recommend using less cayenne pepper, because there are a lot of other seasonings in this recipe.
7. Fenugreek dry leaves: fenugreek seeds powder can be used instead of fenugreek dry leaves as a substitute.
8. Fresh Coriander leaves/Cilantro: handful of freshly chopped coriander leaves and more leaves can be used for garnishing
