1.       Blend all ingredients of paste 1 and make a smooth fine paste using both water and milk. This paste will be liquidy.

3.       Par boil cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, sweet corn, baby corn and French beans till half cooked.
4.       Heat the butter and oil together in a wide pan in which you can stir fry. The oil helps in increasing the smoking point and prevents the butter from burning.
5.       Add jeera seeds and the diced onions. Stir fry on high flame till the onion starts to caramalise at the edges. Now add in the capsicum and red and yellow peppers and again stir fry on high heat till the edges start to colour a bit.
6.       Put in the paneer and stir fry for a minute. Add in the mushrooms, chilli flakes and oregano or mix herb and sauté for some time.
7.       Now add in all the parboiled vegetables and stir fry for a min.
8.       Add in the chilli sauce and tomato ketchup, haldi, little salt and prepared paste1. Bring to a boil.
9.       Now pour in the prepared paste 2 and bring to boil again.
10.   In case you want it saucier then you can add in a little more milk. Check seasonings and salt if needed.
11.   Garnish with grated cheese and chilli flakes and serve hot with plain boiled rice.
