Paneer - 200gm
Potato Medium size - 3
Green chillies - 3
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Chilli powder-  1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Onion - 1
Tomato -1
Salt as required
Oil - 2 tsp (since i air-fried, i required oil only for brushing)
Boil, peel and smash(or grate) potatoes. Scramble paneer. Take paneer, potatoes, chopped green chilli, 1/4 cup of coriander leaves, required salt in a bowl. Mix everything nicely. Make small balls.
Fry paneer balls in hot oil in low flame till it becomes light brown. You can even bake or air-fry the paneer balls to make it healthier. I air-fried the balls.
Chop onions into small pieces, grind tomato into thick paste.
Heat a tsp of oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, saute for 10 seconds, add onion and saute till it becomes transparent. Add tomato puree, saute for a minute, add chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala, turmeric powder and salt. Add 1/2 cup water. Let it mix and cook for 5 minutes, till the gravy thickens. Finally drop the balls, coat it with gravy, don't over-mix since the balls tend to break. Garnish with coriander leaves. 
Serve hot with roti.
