Ingredients Of Handi Paneer

  • 200 gms paneer (plump fresh cheese prepared by curdling milk and then pressing)
  • 2 gingers, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
  • 2 stalks coriander leaves, roughly picked
  • 4 tbsp refined oil
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 pinches black pepper powder, for seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup curd, beaten

How to prepare Handi Paneer

  1. Pour some oil into a handi or cooking pot. Add in the sliced onions and set the flame to medium heat.
  2. When the onions decolorize and turn golden, reduce the flame heat to low. Add in the grated gingers at this stage.
  3. Mix in the garam masala powder, chili powder, and turmeric powder at the same instance. Then rigorously mix the ingredients together.
  4. Finely chop the tomato into small pieces. Add them to the main dish as well – they will ooze out and liquidize the dish. Cook this liquidized sauce for 10 minutes more to dry it a bit.
  5. Next, thoroughly beat and whisk in half a cup of curd. Add some salt along with it. Now cook the dish until all the water is soaked up.
  6. Pour in about half a cup of water and cook until it begins to boil.
  7. Place the malai paneer into the steaming Handi or cooking pot and stir. Pause for a minute and then add in the picked coriander leaves. Cook for a few minutes until all the water dries up and an oil glaze starts to show.
  8. Add black pepper for the final touch and remove the prepared dish from the heat.
  9. Place in a large serving bowl and sprinkle fresh coriander leaves over the aromatic Handi. Serve and let the traditional Eastern masala spice up your taste buds.
