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)

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post.
