PANEER KOLHAPURI
Paneer Kolhapuri is an interesting  Paneer side dish and also different from the usual Paneer Butter Masala and other paneer recipes. Recently i came across the name of the recipe through a friend and i just searched about the recipe in google and finally ended up in making my own to suit my family’s taste.
We had this with Jeera rice and simple Yellow dal.
INGREDIENTS:  (Serves 3-4 )

PANEER CUBES 1 CUP
ONION 1
TOMATO 2 ( I USED 1/4 CUP TOMATO PUREE)
GINGER GARLIC PASTE 1/2 TSP
CUMIN SEEDS 1/4 TSP
DRY COCONUT(KOPARAI) 4 TSP
WHOLE BLACK PEPPER 5-6
SAUNF ( SOMBU) 1/2 TSP
SESAME SEEDS 1 TSP
CARDAMOM 1
CLOVES 2
CASHEW NUTS 4-6
RED CHILLI POWDER 1/2 TSP
CORIANDER POWDER 1/2 TSP
OIL 1 TBLSP
CORIANDER LEAVES FEW

Paneer Kolhapuri 2
METHOD:

  • Dry roast the black pepper, dry coconut, sesame seeds,cardamom , saunf, and cloves till the coconut turns nice brown color. Take care not to burn it.  Lastly add the cashew nuts and switch of the flame. Grin this into a fine paste adding little water.
paneer step 1 paneer step 2
  • In a pan, add oil and add the cumin seeds and  ginger garlic paste.
  • Saute in a low flame till the raw smell goes. Chop the onions finely and add to this.
  • Saute till the onions turn brown.
paneer step 3 paneer step 4
  • Now add the ground masala. After few seconds add the tomato puree( if adding tomatoes, grind it nicely and add at this stage) , red chilli powder, coriander powder and salt.
paneer step 5 paneer step 6

Let this cook for a while in a low flame . Add the paneer cubes and add water to reach a desired consistency. Check for salt. If you wish you can add a dash of garam masala. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Paneer Kolhapuri step 7

  •   Serve hot with roti | jeera rice. Will be posting the recipe of jeera rice soon.

Note:

  • Paneer can be replaced with mixed veggies like carrot, peas and cauliflower.
