North Indian Vegetarian Main Course Special
Punjabi Cuisine
Stir Fried Bell Pepper & Cottage Cheese in a Medium Spiced Gravy (Kadhai Paneer)
Serves 2

Ingredients:
Mix of Butter (5 Grams) & Extra Light Olive Oil/Olive Pomace Oil- 1 Tbsp.

Cottage Cheese (Paneer)- Grams, Cut in 1 Inch Cubes & Roasted till Golden Brown
Green Bell Pepper- 2 Medium, Cut in 1 Inch Dices

Onions- 1 Medium, Cut in 1 Inch Dices
Baby Shallots/Madras Onions- 7 to 8, Peeled (optional)

Parampara Ready to Cook Spice Mix (Paneer Kadhai)
Fresh Coriander Leaves- 1 Tbsp., Finely Chopped

Method:
Mix the Spice Powder with Water& keep aside at least for about 15-20  Minutes

Heat Butter-Oil
Add Jeera, Onions, Madras Onions, Bell Pepper & Stir Fry till golden brown


Add the Spice Mixture in the Stir Fried Vegetables & let it simmer





I added Kasuri Methi towards the end for an added boost of flavour

Saute Paneer in a Non Stick Pan till a Golden Brown crust forms all over (there is no need to add Oil as Paneer tends to leave some Water & works well on a Non Stick Pan)- Optional

Add the Paneer to the Vegetable-Spice Mixture & let it mix well



Tips:
The Baby/Madras Onions are optional which can be replaced with few extra regular Onions
