Ever since i saw this recipe in Aipi's blog,have been cooking this regularly.Paneer is my daughter's new found favorite and this was perfect dish .A very quick and delicious side dish.I have tweaked the recipe a little. Instead of cooking the onions in water i have sauteed it in oil.Rest is the same.
Paneer 200 gms(cut into small cubes)
Cashew 1/2 cup
Milk 1/2 cup
onion 4-5 medium sized
Green chillies 2
Garlic 2-3 pods
Ginger 1/2 ' piece
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Garam masala powder 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds 1/4 tsp
Sugar 1/4 tsp
oil 3 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coriander 2 tbsp to garnish
The original recipe is HERE
Soak the cashew in milk(preferably warm ) for 20 minutes
Grind it into a smooth paste and keep aside
Slice the onions into thin slices.
Heat 2 tsp oil in the pan and saute the onions with the garlic till the onion becomes transparent.
Grind this onion , garlic with the green chillies and ginger into a smooth paste.
Now heat 1 tbsp of oil in the pan and add the cumin seeds.Saute for a second and add the ground onion paste and saute for 3-4 minutes.
Now to this add the ground cashew milk mixture and cook for further 5 minutes in medium flame.
Sprinkle the coriander powder and garam masala to this and mix well. Add salt and sugar.
Now add the cut paneer pieces and 1/4 cup water, cover it and cook for 10 minutes in a very low flame.
Garnish with coriander and serve warm with any flavored rice. I served it with cumin rice as per Aipi's suggestion
Thank you Aipi, loved this combo
