½ lb paneer (Indian cheese) cut into cubes

A little parmesan cheese grated

4 sprigs of fresh whole cilantro

2 tsp butter

2 tsp olive oil

¼ cup milk

½ cup cream

¼ tsp red chili flakes, optional — for an extra spice kick

¼ tsp white pepper powder

2 tsp fresh cilantro chopped

3 garlic cloves chopped

½ cup scallions chopped

2 tsp carrot grated, for garnish

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or as per instructions on the box.
