Garlic Methi Paneer

I had some leftover paneer in the fridge. Thought of making paneer makhani, but then thought... nahhh too heavy!!! Then I remembered I had methi lying in the fridge, and I had to make something out of it. Would have made methi paneer pulav, but then thought NOT making rice as we already had biryani last night... rice 2 days in a row.. not healthy!

So thought of making methi paneer. Had never made this before. Though of googling, but thought otherwise and decided to go with my mood and come up with something.

And it sure did turn good. What a healthy meal... methi paneer, dahi kadhi and rotis!

4 cups, washed n chopped methi leaves
1 cup cubed paneer
5-6 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 green chillies, chopped
1 tbsp dhania-jeera powder
1/4 tspn chilli powder
A pinch of sugar
Salt to taste

  • In a tbsp of hot oil, add the garlic and saute till fragrant.
  • Add the onions and green chillies and saute till the onions are translucent.
  • Now add the paneer and fry till they turn golden brown on some sides.
  • Add the sugar, turmeric powder, dhania-jeera powder, salt and methi leaves.
  • Cover and cook till the leaves become a little limp.
  • Enjoy with rotis!

Innovation comes from the kitchen....I myself was in precisely the same situation you were in one day, n eventually made the same dish.......I wonder how foodies think alike!!!

It was absolutely wonderful
