Ingredients for Paneer Recipe:
- 2 tablespoons Healthy Fibres Cold Pressed Groundnut oil (divided)
- 2 green chilies, chopped
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- Salt to taste
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 small piece of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Healthy Fibres Kashmiri chilly powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Healthy Fibres Lakadong Turmeric Powder
- 1/2 teaspoon tastemaker (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala powder
- 200 grams paneer, cut into cubes
- 1/4 cup grated paneer
- 1 tablespoon Kasuri Methi (dried fenugreek leaves)
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- Fresh coriander leaves, chopped for garnish
- 2 tablespoons fresh cream
Heat 1 tablespoon of Healthy Fibres Cold Pressed Groundnut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the green chilies and chopped onion. Stir until the onions turn translucent.
Add the chopped tomatoes and minced garlic to the pan. Stir for a few minutes—season with salt to taste. Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 5 minutes until the tomatoes are soft and pulpy.
Transfer the cooked masala mixture to a mixer or blender and grind it to make a smooth paste. Set aside.
Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of Healthy Fibres Cold Pressed Groundnut oil in the same pan. Add the bay leaf, cinnamon, and Healthy Fibres Kashmiri chilly powder. Fry for a few seconds until fragrant.
Pour the ground masala paste into the pan. Add Healthy Fibres Lakadong Turmeric Powder, tastemaker (if using), Garam Masala powder, and salt to taste. Stir well to combine all the spices.
Add the cubed paneer and grated paneer to the curry. To make the paneer soft, soak it in hot water with a little salt for a few minutes before adding it to the curry. Gently stir to coat the paneer with the masala.
Cook the paneer curry for another 3-4 minutes on low heat, allowing the flavors to blend. Add a little water to adjust the consistency if the curry becomes too thick.
Towards the end, add Kasuri Methi, sugar, and chopped coriander leaves. Don’t forget to stir well to incorporate the flavors. Finally, drizzle fresh cream over the curry and gently mix it.
Remove from heat and transfer the Paneer Prashamsa to a serving dish.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with naan, roti, or rice.
