On a day when I really crave paneer, but don’t have the time to spend too long on cooking- this recipe just fits the bill.

Terrific with rotis, parathas, as a stuffing for wraps or even rice.


  • Paneer- 350 gm
  • Yellow/ Red Peppers (Capsicum)- 1/2 cup
  • Ginger paste- 1 tsp
  • Garlic paste- 1 tsp
  • Yoghurt- 1/4
  • Onion, sliced- 1/4 cup
  • Fresh coriander, finely chopped- 1/4 cup
  • Turmeric- 1/4 tsp
  • Chilli powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil- 1-2 tsp for cooking


Step 1

Either microwave the block of paneer for just under 1 minute or boil in milk/ water for 4-5 minutes. This makes the paneer really soft. Chop the paneer into cubes.

Step 2

Finely slice the onions and slice the peppers. Beat the yoghurt till smooth.

Step 3

Heat oil in a wok. Add the onions. fry for 2 minutes. Add the ginger garlic paste . Fry for 30 seconds till raw smell goes off.

Step 4

Add the salt, turmeric, chilli powder and garam masala. Fry for just about 1 minute.

Step 5

Add the paneer. Mix well.

Step 6

Pour the beaten yoghurt on top. Mix

Step 7

Add the yellow /green or red peppers and mix.

Step 8

Add the chopped coriander and serve piping hot.

This recipe is really easy to cook and has the right balance of protein and vegetables as well.

For a variation, you could add sweetcorn with the capsicum.
