Paneer Tawa Masala

I use to always admire  the way these tawa dishes were served in parties  ,the veggies sauteed with spices and tossed in gravy just before serving use to tempt me but I never tasted it until recently I happened to try bhindi tawa  masala by chance in a party and I absolutely loved it.  I gave it a try with assorted veggies and it turned out very well so today tried making  it with paneer. It turned out to be a great hit.
I have added capsicum you could add baby corns and mushrooms as well .It's  a simple and easy recipe which goes well with rotis/rice/naan.Do give it a try.

Ingredients:
for marination
200 gms paneer cut in cubes
1/2 tsp kasuri methi/dry fenugreek leaves
3 tbsp curds
1 tsp red chilli powder

 for the gravy
1 large onion chopped finely
1/2 cup tomato puree
1 capsicum chopped 
1 tbsp coriander powder 
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp kasuri methi
1/2 tsp chaat masala
1 tsp cream(optional)
3 tbsp oil .
salt to taste.




Method:
  • Mix the chilli powder ,kasuri methi ,salt ,curds and marinate the paneer pieces.
  • Shallow fry the paneer pieces & keep aside.
  • On a tawa/griddle/ non stick pan heat oil  add cumin seeds,onion and saute till brown.
  • Then add the chopped capsicum & saute.
  • Then add the  tomato puree & fry till oil separates .
  • Add the chilli powder/kasuri methi, garam masala,salt and about 1/2 cup water.
  • Let it cook for 5 min then lastly add the paneer pieces & chat masala mix well.
  • If using cream add now & give it a stir & cook for a minute .
  • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves & serve hot.
Note:
You could add 2 grated  tomatoes instead of the tomato puree.

  14. Paneer isn't very popular over here because we prefer tofu. Its a recipe; perfect as a delicious side for our meatless meal. I shall try out if possible for this weekend.
