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
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.
Finely slice the onions and slice the peppers. Beat the yoghurt till smooth.
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.
Add the salt, turmeric, chilli powder and garam masala. Fry for just about 1 minute.
Add the paneer. Mix well.
Pour the beaten yoghurt on top. Mix
Add the yellow /green or red peppers and mix.
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.
