Simple Paneer Curry

As a part of weekend clearing of my refrigerator, just before heading to Kerala on a short vacation last month, I decided to cook something with whatever was left. What I got was a pack of cottage cheese, couple of onions, tomatoes and some curd. I decided to whip up something by adding whatever I f

Paneer Jalfrezi

While heading for my vacation to Kerala, I had a long list of authentic Kerala recipes in my to-do list. The realisation that I left my camera back home was a heart-breaking. Well, there wasn’t much I could do about it as I was not pleased with the mobile phone picture results. All I could do was to

Kadai Paneer (Cottage Cheese with Capsicum in Tomato Gravy)

Till about 12 years back, I was under the impression that Kadai Paner was one of those exotic dishes, which could be whipped up only by those highly experienced cooks/chefs. Only when I came across this recipe and when I tried it out myself did I realise how wrong I was. This recipe calls for basic

Badaami Paneer (Cottage Cheese in Almond based Gravy)

Almonds are very good sources of vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, copper, riboflavin (vitamin B2), and phosphorus. No, I am not talking about mining these minerals for industrial use. 😉 These minerals in trace amounts are required by our body to remain healthy. Though almonds are considered fatty,

Apple Sandesh

Usually I like to laze around and take it easy on Sundays and Holidays. But today was an exception…. Why so??? ‘Cos I was back on my feet after a bout of viral fever. Moreover, I was feeling lonely, as J was out of station and D was having a sleepover at his friend’s place. So what do you do then

Paneer Tawa Masala

Those who had read through my previous posts must have figured out my affinity towards “Jiggs Kalra” recipes. His recipes have always worked for me. Looking back, I certainly regret not having bought the recipe book when I got the opportunity. 10 odd years back, I wasn’t even aware who Jiggs Kalra w

Paneer Makhani/ Butter Paneer (Cottage Cheese in Butter-Tomato Gravy)

Paneer Makhani is one of the simplest North Indian gravy that I have made. As the name suggests, it needs to be cooked in butter. However, keeping the “eat healthy” aspect in mind, I use a non -stick pan to reduce the consumption of butter. If you want to indulge yourself, go ahead and use butter ge

Raspberry Matar (Fried Cottage Cheese balls and Peas in a Rich Gravy)

Contrary to its name, Raspberry Matar does not have anything to with Raspberries. So why the name?? I wish I had an answer. 🙁 My wild guess is that the chef who invented this dish thought of a fancy name to woo his customers… 🙂 The raspberries in this recipe are nothing but fried paneer balls.

Paneer Paratha…Indian Bread stuffed with Cottage Cheese

Winter has set its big foot on this side of the world. I dislike winters. Why?? The multiple layers of clothing, the ice cold water, the nip in the air…the list is endless. The one and only thing I would love to do is to either sit outside and bask in the sun or cozy up inside a blanket. Sometimes

Palak Paneer (Cottage Cheese in Spinach gravy)

The first time I liked Palak Paneer was when we tried it in a restaurant named Riviera in Secunderabad. The gravy was creamy and rich and I just loved it. I had tasted Palak Paneer on several occasions but none pleased me. My aim was to get that rich and creamy taste. Fortunately, there are very les
