Paneer Dipped in Pudina Gravy

1:15 PM

This will be suitable with any Paratha / Naan / Roti. This gravy is my own creation. Its very simple. I had earlier made this dish with only paneer and other spices. Later on my husband suggested to add vegetables.The second time I used vegetables to ... We loved it for roti's

Since this recipe includes spices this will be my entry to Think Spice...think Star Anise, hosted by Sunita

Pudina With Paneer
Ingredients
  • Pudina leaves - 2 cups
  • Paneer Cubes - 20 to 25
  • Tomato - 2

  • Garlic clove - 1
  • Medium size Onion - 1 (chopped)
  • Green chillies - 8
  • Cashews - 2 tsp (soaked in water)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 4 tsp
Method
For the paste : -
  • Boil the tomatoes ( I used in microwave without adding water). Take out the skin
  • Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan
  • Add ginger - garlic, onion, pudina leaves fry till onion soft
  • Grind the tomatoes, fried ginger-garlic, onion, pudina leaves & green chillies, cashews (water as per req)
  • Make a smooth paste.
How to Proceed :-
  • Fry paneer in the hot oil. When it is frying, as soon as the paneer cubes are light golden in color, remove it and put it in the medium hot water. Again remove from the water and dry it on a paper. So that you will get soft cubes and as well as all the oil goes away. Keep aside
