Renaissance paneer - Punjab meets Parma


This is another of my ten minute recipes. I conjured this up in the other day when I needed to rustle up something for a friend who was coming over. He is largely a vegetarian and wanted something light and salad like.
So I made a dish with paneer (famous world over for the Punjabi Mutter Paneer) and Italian herbs. I was quite pleased with the results and it was so easy to prepare.
Ingredients:
  • 250 g paneer (Indian cottage cheese), cubed. I bought this fresh from the carts at Pali Market, bandra
  • 1 table spoon chopped onion
  • 2 table spoon chopped tomato
  • 1 table spoon mixed dry herbs/ spices - oregano, chilly flakes, crushed pepper. You might have these at home if you order pizzas and save the herb sachets which come with that
  • 1 table spoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 a chopped capiscum/ bell pepper - green & red
  • 1 table spoon chopped cilantro, dhania
  • Optional - fresh chopped basil leaves

Recipe:

  • Heat the oil in a non stick pan
  • Add the onion and stir till its translucent
  • Add the tomato and stir till its a bit soft
  • Add the paneer and the spices
  • Stir very gently as the paneer might break
  • Add the capsicum
  • You will know the dish is ready as the surface of the paneer gets braised (looks a bit brown). This will take 3-4 minutes at the most
  • Add in the cilantro/ dhnaia or basil leaves (gives it a sharp, fresh flavour) and shut the flame
  • The end

You can have this by itself, with rotis or bread rolls

That sounds so quick to make. I like the idea of adding the herbs.

@Sharmila...yes the herbs gives a very different flavour to paneer. And the best thing is it is a vegetarian dish where u don't have to peel and chop too much. Cooking non veg is so much easier
