    Method

    1. Place the cashew nuts in warm water for 20-30 minutes to soften them up.
    2. Place the cashew nuts, yoghurt, coconut, and poppyseeds in a food processor and blitz until it makes a thick paste. Set aside.
    3. Heat the 20 ml of the oil over a medium heat and fry the paneer cubes in batches until they are golden brown (2-3 minutes per side). Transfer to a paper towel to drain.
    4. Heat the remaining oil over a medium heat.
    5. Add the chopped onions, cardamom pods and bay leaf and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the mixture becomes fragrant.
    6. Add the spices and stir well. Sauté for another 1-2 minutes.
    7. Add the chilli sauce and Lazenby sauce and increase the heat to high. Fry for about 1 minutes until the liquid is mostly evaporated.
    8. Reduce the heat to low and add the yoghurt paste, sugar and seasonings.
    9. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
    10. Add the water and allow to come to a simmer. Simmer until the mixture becomes slightly thickened.
    11. Add in the paneer cubes and continue to simmer until the gravy becomes thick.
    12. Sprinkle with fresh coriander just before service.
