Easy and fast 10 minute paneer curry which can be made in a jiffy. This spicy tangy tomato based curry can be served with rice, roti.
This is a recipe which i made for a quick dinner fix. One night i was so tired and can't even think about making dinner. I remembered that i had some readymade chapati in the fridge. So i just have to make some quick gravy to go with it. I had a packet of paneer which was nearing its expiry date. So i decided to use that and make this curry. I didn't add any onions, ginger or garlic in this. The main flavour comes from the spices and the amount of coriander leaves which you add in the end. So easy and so yummy.
Paneer is often credited to Persian and Afghan monarchs who introduced it to North India in the 16th century, where it was produced with either goat or sheep rennet. The word paneer stems from the Turkish and Persian words peynir, which simply
means cheese. Paneer Gravy is a creamy and mildly sweet gravy made with tomatoes, cashews, spices and paneer
