Pepper paneer gravy recipe | Paneer recipes

Pepper paneer recipe in coconut milk gravy, a delicious paneer dish pairs well with naan| roti. I tasted this for the first time in Zaffron banana leaf restaurant in Singapore. When i was invited there for food tasting in August 2017, i tasted this pepper paneer(which is called as Paalkatti milgaai pirattal). I asked the Chief chef there about the recipe and it sounded so simple too. Later in October 2017, i attended a cookery demo by Chef. Damu in the restaurant and was taught the same recipe. I learnt the exact recipe from the chef himself and it tasted the same, when i tried it on that day. It is actually Chef's signature recipe, which is made using Prawns. But since i was the only vegetarian in that group, he told me to replace it with Paneer. Try this pepper paneer gravy recipe at home and i am sure you will love the chettinad version of paneer gravy.
This post i have drafted few months back, but didn't post. I generally keep one recipe post in reserve,which will help me on days when i have no time on my disposal to write a post. As Kids are having their term break holidays,i don't have much time to concentrate on my work. So this post comes as a breeze for me today.
Check out my other paneer recipes too.
