Ingredients

How to make it

  • Heat olive oil in large stir fry pan, or wok over medium heat. Add onion.
  • Cook about 3 minutes, alone.
  • Add butter, garlic, cumin, pepper, turmeric and coriander
  • Add paneer cubes and carefully brown on all sides.
  • Remove from pan.
  • Add spinach, tomatoes and ginger to pan and toss while cooking down
  • If using cream, add now, and stir just to combine.
  • Add cheese back to pan and toss til warmed
  • **Here's a simple recipe for Paneer:
  • 1q whole fat or 2% milk
  • juice from 2 lemons
  • salt and cumin(about 1tsp or so, each, maybe a bit more salt)
  • Heat milk, salt and cumin over medium heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
  • Remove from heat and add lemon juice, 1/2 lemon at a time, stirring constantly. Curds will separate from whey while stirring. It will take on a cottage cheese type consistency.
  • When whey is only slightly cloudy and curds are defined, pour into cheesecloth over large bowl/dish to strain.
  • When mostly done draining, and cooling, carefully squeeze out as much of the liquid as you can, and mold curds into "block" type shape.(think "cream cheese":)
  • Place in shallow bowl, then cover the cloth covered cheese block with heavy object(I used my cast iron dutch oven).
  • Let rest, there, a couple hours, til all that's gonna come out is out :)
  • Refrigerate at least several hours before using in a recipe such as above...the longer it sets, the firmer it will be

    Absolutely Gorgeous!!! Indian food is just one more culinary area that intimidates me. When I crave it, I always end up eating out or simply ordering take-out. But THIS, this recipe, I MUST try! Thanks for terrific photos, too.

    I can totally appreciate this recipe, although it's not something I will probably make (just not my (or hubby's) type of food. I do respect the authenticity of it. Good one, Keni. :*)
