Not-too-chilli paneer

This is a really simple paneer recipe that can work equally well with rice, rotis or even bread.

Serves 4-5

Ingredients:
350gm paneer, diced into 1 cu cm cubes(or as large as comfortable for kids)
1 medium capsicum
A puree of

2 tomatoes
3 small onions
a small bunch of coriander leaves
2 green chillies
1.5 tsp ginger paste
Cinnamon
Shah-jeera
Shah-mirch
3/4 tsp salt
Oil
Process:
Heat oil.
Add cinnamon, shah-jeera and shah-mirch.
Once the mixture splutters(I'm not sure how to describe the moment when they're just right!), add the puree
Allow to boil
Add the paneer, boil once more.
Add the capsicum, seeded and diced, while waiting for the thing to boil.
Simmer for about 2 min.

That's it.

wow thats quick..Sorry Suki but I am not aware of what is "Shah" Jeera and "Shah" Mirch. Please let me know

Suki said...

They are basically spices that look and taste mostly like Jeera and Golmirch, but have a warmer flavour. Cousins of those two, I would suppose.
