In a pan, heat oil. Add onion, ginger, kasuri methil ,green chillies, turmeric and saute till the onikns turn soft. Do not brown the onions. Add coconut milk, coconut bits and 1/2 a cup of water and stir it continuosly, so the milk does not curdle. Boil for 5 mins.
Add the paneer cubes , salt, sugar and further boil for 3 mins. In the meantime make a liquidish paste of the wheat flour and add it to the gravy. This will help in giving a creamy consistency to the gravy.
