Long back i’ve posted an Achaari Paneer recipe sent to me by a blog friend.This recipe is also sent to me by the same person,an equally good one which can be served with rotis.Thanks again Bindu,I really appreciate your enthusiasm and sharing attitude.
Kadhai Paneer,as per the name is paneer in a Kadhai(wok).This is a Punjabi favorite where fried paneer and green bell peppers are cooked in a spicy creamy tomato sauce and flavored with Kasoori Methi(dry fenugrek leaves) and coriander leaves.
Paneer cubed – 100 gms
Green Peppers/Capsicum cut into squares – 2 medium sized
Onion quartered and layers seperated – 1 medium sized
Ginger julienned – a 1/2″ piece
Garlic cloves chopped fine – 4
Tomatoes chopped – 2 big
Green Chillies chopped – 4
Coriander powder – 2 tbsps
Chilly powder -1 tsp
Kasoori Methi – 2 tbsps
Chopped Coriander leaves – 1/2 cup
Oil – as needed
Ghee – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Heat ghee in a pan and fry the paneer pieces until they turn slight brown on its sides.Remove and drain into a tissue paper.Now to the same pan add more oil and fry onion and capsicum till onion turn translucent.Remove them from oil and reserve.Now add finely chopped garlic,ginger and chilli to the same pan.Fry it for a while and then add sauteed onion and capsicum into it.Stir in chilly powder and coriander powder.Then add the tomatoes,mix well and cook until tomatoes melt and the oil seperates.Add kasuri methi and salt and stir them together.(If you wish,add a little tomato ketchup at this stage to make it slightly sweet and more creamy.) Finally add the paneer pieces mix well,cover the pan with a lid and simmer for few minutes.Now add chopped coriander leaves,stir and switch off the heat.Again cover and let it stand for few more minutes.Serve hot with rotis.
