Quick Paneer Do Pyaza: Addition to Paneer Recipe Collection

paneer do pyaza
My paneer recipe collection is getting bigger and tastier.

But I rarely make fancy paneer recipes, except paneer bhurji, as I talked about in my previous post on paneer badami.

Nevertheless, these days, I am trying to experiment with the diverse paneer recipes.

After all, for nonvegetarians, paneer is the best source of protein. Not to mention, it tastes delish in whichever form you have it.

So today, I have tried paneer do pyaza. Amit likes do pyaza recipes, but his wife has never tried her hands at it. Today was the day when I got over my hesitation on "do pyaza"..LOL




Thankfully had paneer (cottage cheese) in stock. All I needed was a recipe. So a quick Google search drove me to Dassana Amit's popular blog (vegrecipesofIndia). I found it an exceedingly simple recipe. I like this website, with pictorial description of all recipes.

I had all ingredients at hand. I followed her recipe, with a slight modification here and there and was able to make paneer do pyaza for the first time. I added hung curd instead of cream, but there was no difference in taste. Rather, the taste was overpowering. Try this simple paneer do pyaaza recipe, and nobody can tell it is homemade!

Paneer Recipe Ingredients
1 cup- paneer
4 small onions +2 big ones (or you may take 2 big ones instead of 4 smaller ones)
2- tomatoes
1 tbsp- ginger-garlic paste
1 green chilly/red chilly powder
kasuri methi
garam masala (my Odiya MIL's recipe)
salt, turmeric, black pepper
coriander powder (dhaniya)
1 big cardamom (badi elaichi)
1 small cardamom (hari elaichi)
1 laung (clove)
1 small cinnamon stick (dalchini)
pinch of shah jeera (or plain jeera - cumin seeds)
1 tbsp- oil
1 tbsp- hung curd(or cream or nothing at all)

Sugarless Besan Ladoo : A Healthy Chickpea Gluten Free Recipe

besan ladoo Is chickpea gluten free? This is one of the most common question asked by few besan lovers. I have always been fond of besan (gram flour) ladoos. But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.
