Paneer Do Pyaza
A perfect dish to go with butter naan or a plain roti. It is colorful and healthy too packed with protein and minerals. Very easy to prepare.
Servings: 1 big bowl
- 3-4 medium sized onions cubed
- 2-3 medium sized bell peppers capsicum, cubed
- 2-3 green chili
- 5-6 medium sized tomatoes cubed
- 250 grams cottage cheese cubed, paneer
- 2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/4 tsp red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- to taste salt
- a pinch asafoetida
- 2-3 tbsp tomato ketchup sauce
- 100 ml milk or cream
- 2 tbsp oil
In a thick bottom pan, heat oil. Add asafoetida and mustard seeds. Allow the seeds to splutter.
Add cubed onions and sauté till soft. Add cubed pepper & tomatoes. Mix well.
Add all spices and ketchup (sauce) except milk and paneer.
Cover the pan and cook on slow flame till the vegetables are tender, about 8-10 minutes.
Add milk or cream and allow it to come to a boil. Add paneer cubes. Adjust salt to taste.
Serve hot with naan.
You can replace paneer with tofu.
For a richer version use cream in place of milk.
The gravy needs to be little, making the dish sticky rather than runny.
