Kalimirch Paneer (Cottage Cheese in peppery gravy)

Peppery! A strong flavor!
How does it sound to you? Well, to me it sounds delicious.
The goodness of  pepper (good for calorie reduction) in the soft, sweet & creamy gravy just makes me drool.
All we need to do is add the right bit of pepper to get the desired twist for your eagerly waiting taste buds.

We need:

  • Paneer/Cottage Cheese - 200 gms
  • Peppercorns -10-15 (crushed)
  • Onions - 3 medium sized
  • Bay leaves - 2
  • Badi Elaichi (Black Cardamom) - 2
  • Curd - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1 tsp
  • Salt - As per taste

Cut the paneer in cubes. Grind the onions & keep ready. Whisk the curd with sugar in it & set aside.
Now, heat the pan, add oil & throw in the bay leaves & badi elaichi. Now, pour the onion paste & saute till it becomes light brown. To this add the crushed peppercorn & curd & let it cook till the oil finds way. Be around to ensure the gravy doesn't stick to the pan. If required add the desired amount of water & wait till it boils. Cover & cook for a few minutes so that the flavors mix in well.
The gravy is ready & the paneer cubes can be now added to this & served hot with your favorite bread!

Not a difficult recipe to follow!
There is no need to add a bowl full of spices to make it tasty.
This finger licking recipe can be cooked within 20 mts.

  • Do not add turmeric to this dish - you may if you wish to create a remixed version though! :)
  • Sugar is also optional
  • You may add cream instead of curd to make this super rich & fluffy
  • Serve with Indian bread - roti, chappati, parantha
