My husband keeps buying paneer! Maybe it’s a big hint for me to make him some. So on Saturday, I decided to make a paneer curry! This time I made the pepper the star of the show and it really adds a gentle warmth to the curry. There are still two blocks of paneer, so I’m sure you all will be seeing another paneer incorporated recipe here this week
I hope you enjoy this version…Take care and have a lovely day friends! Much love D x
1 red bell pepper chopped
250g panner cubed
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 green chilli finely chopped
½ tsp ginger paste
1 onion sliced crescents
1 small green bell pepper sliced strips
1 cup frozen peas
200g tomato passata
1 tbsp sunflower oil
¼ tsp mustard seeds
¼ tsp cumin seeds
Salt to taste
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander and cumin powder
1 tsp shahi paneer masala
Heat up the oil in a medium non stick saucepan along with the mustard and cumin seeds. Once they start to pop throw in the the red bell pepper with the garlic and ginger paste. Stir fry on a medium for a couple of minutes
Gently pour in the tomato passata with all the spices and seasoning. Stir, cover and cook through on a slow heat for 5 minutes
Place in the cubed paneer and mix well, ensuring all the tomato masala is coating the paneer. Mix in the onion and green pepper with the chilli. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.
Stir in the peas and cook for a further 10 minutes. Serve with some naan bread
I’ve bought the paneer….still haven’t used it though!!
Ooh…It’s a must xx
Yummmm. I adore paneer! I’ve never cooked it at home but you’ve enticed me to try it (maybe I should drop hints for my husband to buy some paneer, too!). Love all the aromatics in this curry! xx
If he is buying paneer that sounds broader than a hint, Dimple….
True lol 😉
I love paneer with spinach or peas but have never made it at home…I like this recipe as it does not look as heavy (no cream) thanks for sharing 🙂
My pleasure…Yes cream would be lovely but way too much fat
Yummy blog you have there!
Thanks so much Mira..Welcome to Shivaay Delights 🙂
