I am here with another healthy addition to your diet. Its name tells everything about it. My kids are great fan of paneer so generally my dishes are full of paneer but to have paneer every second day with same taste sounds little weird. To spare us from this boredom of taste I usually give my twist and turns to these dishes to make them more interesting and presentable. So that kids tummy bhi khush aur mummy bhi khush.
This is so simple yet delicious side dish full of protein and iron. To give it further more healthy touch I avoided using cream and more oil. Even then it is so yummy to be a part of any party menu also.
Step wise recipe of dish is given below ,hope you all will like it.
CHILLI CHANA METHI PANEER
1 1/2 cup cottage cheese ( paneer)
1 cup finely chopped fenugreek leaves ( methi leaves)
1 1/2 cup boiled chickpeas
1 cup cubed colored capsicum
1 1/2 cup milk
2 big onions ( finely chopped in chopper or pureed)
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
3-4 green chilies finely chopped
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafetida ( heeng)
3/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp kitchen king masala
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp kasoori methi
Salt to taste
First of all drizzle some oil on a non stick pan and stir fry capsicum till they get little charred. It will give little smokey flavor to curry.
Now heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok and add heeng followed by cumin seeds. Let it splutter then add chopped or pureed onion and chilies.
Fry till they become light golden and then add ginger garlic paste and saute for 2 more mins.
Then add all masalas and little water to avoid burning of spices. Let it fry till nice aroma comes and It starts leaving edges of wok.
Then add chopped methi leaves and fry for further 4-5 mins till methi leaves get cooked.
Add boiled chickpeas and fry for 2-3 mins.
Now add milk and let it boil.
Finally add paneer, capsicums, salt and kasoori methi. Let it simmer for 5 more mins.
And it's done. You can adjust seasoning and gravy consistency as per your taste at this stage.
Now it's ready to serve. This is so easy and healthy recipe to relish on.
This can be served with roti, naan, rice etc and can be a part of your party menu too.
