Chutney Paneer

The last one of the colour series is this very delicious Paneer starter.My daughter loves paneer and am constantly in search of paneer dishes. One such search led me to this starter from Sanjeev Kapoor.I did not have the aam ka paapad, so haven’t used it. Banana leaves gives this dish a wonderful flavour and there is no dearth of banana leaves in the city that I stay. MY daughter had a bite and said why don’t restuarants serve these starters!!!Do try this simple flavourful and delicately soft chutney paneer
200 gms
Banan Leaves
Green chutney

Coriander Leaves
1/2 cup
Mint Leaves
1/2 cup
Fried gram dal
Small onions
Green chilli
Lemon juice
Chat Masala
to taste

Grind all the ingredients  for the green chutney into a very smooth paste. Keep it aside
Cut the paneer into 6 pieces of equal size
Dip each paneer piece in the chutney generously and place it on the washed and wiped banana leave and then fold the leaf on all four sides like a parcel.
Make all the parcels the same way
Now heat a skillet on a medium flame
Place the paneer parcel on it, the folded side downwards, so that it does not open, drizzle oil around and cook till the leaf starts to brown
Flip it over and cook the other side too
Cook all the parcels the same way
Serve warm
Let the kid/guest open the banana parcel and see the surprise inside
