CHUTNEY PANEER (PANEER IN FRESH CORIANDER)

CHUTNEY PANEER

“Chutney Paneer” is a nice tangy, spicy , non creamy  way to make paneer. It is easy and healthy because we use a lot of greens in this, contarary to palak paneer which usually has cream and butter in it. If you have coriander leaves which are going to go bad, just make this recipe and your family will love it 🙂 You can also use left over chutney to make this…yes i am not joking 🙂
INGREDIENTS:
Paneer made out of 1 litre milk (see HERE for how to make home made paneer)
1 cup of chopped coriander leaves, i used my magic scissors to chop them
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint leaves
2-3 green chillies or more if you like it spicy
1 onion, quartered
4 cloves of garlic
1″ piece ginger
2 red tomatoes, quartered
salt to taste
a pinch of pure turmeric powder
3 tablespoons of olive oil
METHOD:
Put the tomatoes in the blender and blend…then add all the other ingredients slowly and blend till you get  a fine paste. Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the ground paste and cover. Cook for about ten minutes or till you see the oil separating from the paste  and the raw smell has disappeared.  Do cover the pan as the paste will start spluttering as it gets cooked. Once its cooked, add a cup of water and let it boil. Add the paneer which you have cut into cubes (if you want you can deep fry the paneer…i usually dont) and cook till you get the desired gravy consistency,
NITU DIDI TIP:
If you want you can add some kasuri or fresh methi (fenugreek leaves) into the blender.
How to store coriander leaves for a long time? Well what i do is i remove all the yellow leaves, and any other damaged leaves. I then chop the roots off. I put it in a kitchen towel spreading it and wipe it dry. Then i wrap it carefully in newspaper or put it in a brown paper bag. It keeps well for a week if the coriander leaves are fresh,
