Creamy Paneer Curry...

Here's a delightfully creamy and easy Paneer recipe. I usually buy the Hatsun brand Paneer... among all the brands available here, I find they are the best. So if you like Paneer, try this out sometime...

Heat a little oil and fry sliced onions with ginger and garlic paste till the onions turn translucent.

Drop in some chopped tomatoes and fry for a few more minutes.

Add appropriate quantity of chillie, coriander, turmeric and jeera powder.

Mix it up and let it fry for a few minutes... 

After the onion tomato masala mixture has cooled down, grind it with a little water to make a smooth paste.

Chop your paneer into the required size and shallow fry them in a little oil, till they turn slightly brown at the edges.

After frying them drop them in a little warm water, so that they remain soft and succulent. 

In a vessel, add the ground masala paste along with the paneer (any other vegetable like potatoes, peas or capsicum can be added too). Mix it up well, add salt and appropriate quantity of water then let the dish simmer for a few minutes.

After a few minutes of cooking the paneer in the masala curry, add some fresh cream. Milk can be used if fresh cream is not available. Give it a mix and simmer for a few minutes, till the cream is well incorporated into the curry.

By now you'll have a nice creamy curry, sprinkle garam masala over the top and cook for a few more minutes... 

That's it, add a blob of butter just before serving... I hope you enjoy the dish.

December 2016 and January 2017

The last few months of 2016 were crazy in so many ways. First there was the money issue (when the higher denomination notes lost their value overnight) which created a mess of economic proportions. The insane queues at banks and ATM's and all the scrambling that was happening to make sense of it all, made November quite memorable.  Around the same time, Trump came out victorious which I thought was pretty hilarious... a sort of validation that people are the same everywhere, based on who we elected here.  Anyway, after the chaos of November, December came with her own brand of drama. I heard of Cyclone Nada, but I was busy in Nagercoil then enjoying a birthday party...Even that was fun, surprising the birthday girl who did not know that I was at the airport with dad. She walks up and down and I'm hiding behind the newspaper pretending to read it, then I see Manoj by her side, and they finally come out and she is hugging my dad and after that I walk up behind her and tap her on t…
