  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat; fry paneer in 2 batches until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer fried paneer to a kitchen paper-lined plate to drain, retaining some of the vegetable oil in the pan.
  2. Add butter to the same frying pan over medium heat; cook and stir onion until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add ginger and garlic pastes. Continue to cook until fragrant, about 1 minute more. Stir cashews, ground red chillies, cumin, coriander and garam masala into onion mixture. Cook and stir for 1 minute.
  3. Stir passata, cream, milk, sugar and salt into spice mixture; simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Add fried paneer and simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes more.
