I had never tried any recipes using capsicum, when my neighbor Bill gave me these beautiful , glossy capsicums i was wondering what to do with those.I never liked the smell of capsicum but I didn’t want to throw them off just like that.So i asked my cousin for some recipe and she gave this one.Paneer along with capsicum…mm i shall say i did like this curry. 🙂
Capsicum – 2 (chopped into cubes)
Paneer – 2 cups
Onion – 1 medium size
Ginger & garlic paste – 2 tbs
Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
Tomato puree – 1 cup
Coriander powder – 2 tbs
Garam masala – 1/2 tsp
Chili powder – 1 tbs
Kasuri methi – crushed 1 tbs
Milk + Yogurt – 2 tbs
1. Fry paneer in oil till they turn golden brown and soak them in hot water so that they remain soft.
2.In a pan heat few tablespoons of oil , add cumin seeds and onion.Saute onion till it turns golden brown.
3.Next add ginger-garlic paste and saute till the raw smell is gone.
4. Next add the capsicum pieces.Add some salt and water and cook for a while.
5.Now is the time to add coriander powder, chili powder and garam masala.
6.Next add the tomato puree and cook till the capsicum is well done.
7. Drain the water from paneer.Add Kasuri methi and paneer cubes almost in the end.Add milk and yogurt to give the final touch.
You may use cream, if available.I didn’t have those so just tried this milk + yogurt mixture.
This dish goes well with chapati & roti.
