I had Paneer waiting for it's turn in the fridge , & everyday I was postponing , as I could not decide what I wanted to do with it. Finally I selected a basic gravy & did some mix and match with the vegetables on hand , which gave shape to this dish.
I guess this is how new dishes are invented !
Carrot - 1 medium , chopped & cooked
Capsicum - 1 small, diced
Tomato - 1/2 cup, diced
Paneer- 1/2 cup, diced
oil- 3 tbsps
Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 medium, chopped
Garlic 4 cloves
Ginger - 1/2 '' piece
Cashew - a few
Poppy Seeds - 2 tsps
Jeera - 1 tsp
Chilly Powder - 1 tsp
Green chilly - 2
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Cardamom, clove - 1 each
Cinnamon- 1/2 ''
Fry the paneer in oil till the color changes & keep immersed in warm water.
In the same oil, add the masala paste & stir till the raw smell goes.
Pour in some water to make a gravy & add the salt. Slip in the capsicum pieces & cover & cook for a few minutes.
This is followed by the tomato . Cook for a couple of minutes.
The carrots & the paneer can join in .
Pour in the coconut milk & bring to a boil.
Put off the gas. Add the lemon juice.
Enjoy with roti.
