Paneer Chandi (royal paneer recipe) | Rich Paneer Dish

Paneer Chandi is cubes of cottage cheese simmered in a white gravy then decorated with silver(leaf) foil.
This dish is very mild and cooked in a creamy gravy with just a hint of whole aromatic spices and is best eaten with a spicy veg pulao or garlic naan.

I made this for my diwali dinner as a special treat.If you do not have silver foil available just garnish with blanched and peeled almonds.It will still taste great.

Hope you try this royal panner recipe.

 For making Paneer Chandi you need

Full cream paneer - 1 pack

For the paste
1 cup milk
2 onions
1/2 inch ginger
2 garlic pods
4/5 cashews - soaked for 15 min
2 green chilis

1 bay leaf
2 tbs cream
2/3 cardamom pods
1 tsp shah jeera
1 tsp sugar
salt to taste

Silver foil for decoration

~ In case you want to skip the cream and milk you can check out my white gravy paste and cook the panner adding this paste.But for a festival i insist you use all the "good stuff.

So here is the recipe

Start by making a smooth paste with the onion,ginger,chilis, garlic and cashews.
Blend everything with little milk.Keep some milk aside for later.

For best results use panner which is kept out of the fridge,then lightly fry the panner in ghee,make sure you do not brown it.

Remove the pieces and in the same pan add some more ghee,and add the whole garam masalas.
Then add the blended paste and cook on low till the ghee separates.Add salt and sugar.
Make sure you cook it on low heat,the gravy must have a very light golden colour.

Now add in the paneer and toss gently,add in the remaining milk so the paneer gets soft and cook covered for 2/3 min.Be very gentle when you stir the cubes.
Then add in the cream and cook on low heat for 5 min.Switch of the flame and cover for 10 min.

Serve in a silver plate and decorate with silver leaf before serving this royal dish.
Now your done !

Happy Diwali to all my fabulous blogger friends !
