A quick starter dish made absolutely in no time and finished in no time as well.
All you need is handful of ingredients readily available in your kitchen counter and you are good to start. I sourced this recipe from a cookery show aired on a Malayalam channel and the recipe used chicken. I twisted it and threw in paneer instead of chicken and it tasted delicious.
Paneer is marinated with curds and spices and cooked together. Yes this is a one liner description of the recipe. You could marinate the paneer as long as you wish, this is the only step that would be time consuming as cooking would take you 20 more minutes. Okay!! lets get started.
Take curd in a bowl ; Add little salt,Turmeric,Red chilli powder and coriander powder .
Mix it well.
Cut paneer into small pieces.
Marinate paneer and keep it aside.
In a pan, heat little oil ; add cumin seeds and curry leaves and fry it.
Add marinated paneer and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Cook on high flame with the lid open till the gravy evaporates.
