Sheetal Kamat

I was looking for variations in paneer and came across Paneer Pasanda Recipe on youtube. I really liked the way the dish was done, especially paneer stuffing and hence I came up with this one after few alterations to the recipe.

Stuffed Paneer
400gm Paneer
2 Spoon Raisins
1/4 Cup Corriander Leaves
2 Green Chillies
1/2 Spoon Maida
1/2 Spoon Corn Flour
2 Tomatoes
1/2 Spoon Jeera
1/4 Spoon Mustard
1/2 Spoon Turmeric Powder
1 Spoon Red Chilli Powder
1/2 Spoon Garam Masala
1/4 Spoon Jeera Powder
1/4 Spoon Corriander Powder
1/2 Spoon Kasuri Methi
1 Cup Cream
Salt to taste

  • Cut the paneer into triangle shaped pieces - medium sized
  • Grate 3 pieces and rest keep aside
  • With the grated paneer mix, finely chopped corriander, finely chopped green chillies and raisins. Keep aside
  • For the other traingle shaped pieces, slit the paneer from diagonal side such that it gives little butter fly shape when slightly opened
  • Fill-in the stuffing of -paneer and raisins that we kept aside.
  • Mix maida, corn flour and water in a bowl to form paste
  • Dip the stuffed paneer pieces in this mixture and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and fry the stuffed paneer pieces in a pan over medium flame to light brown colour. Keep aside
  • In same oil, let the mustard and jeera splutter.
  • Add finely chopped tomatoes to this
  • Add red chilli powder, jeera powder, corriander powder, turmeric powder, garam masala to this and cook till tomatoes are completely done.
  • After the above mixture cools down, add kasuri methi and grind it in mixie to get smooth paste with fine particles of black mustard, jeera and kauri methi visible.
  • In same pan add this paste and enough water and the fried stuffed paneer. Bring it to boil
  • Add the salt and cream to this and cook for another minute or two.

I didnt cook kasuri methi before gridning, and kept its quantity little higher which gave the gravy very unique taste.

    if you look at it :) it looks like a fish preparation ... may be because fishes are usually cut in triangular shape. This dish was so so ... i mean with paneer i always compare with sheetals very own paneer peshwari dish ... so always the paneer peshwari wins

  2. I loved this dish and taste was also rich and unique. Ajoy might differ but I was really asked by my couple of friends for recipe so dont go by ajoy's word for standardising all paneer dishes with paneer peshwari.. This is indeed one dellicious item and must try. The gravy along with stuffed paneer pieces was awesome.
