Variations

  • If you don’t have curd you can use just spice powders along with little water to coat the masalas. It will taste still good only.
  • You can add kasoori methi, chat masala powder, tikka masala or tandoori masala powder along with marinade for a different taste.
  • I usually use these basic spice powders, you can plus or minus them according to your taste buds.

Paneer Fry Ingredients

  • Paneer – Use fresh soft homemade paneer for best taste. If you use frozen paneer thaw /defrost it first by allowing it in room temperature for about an hour and then add it to gravy.If the paneer is store bought, getting aged & within expiry date, it tends to get rubbery. So soak paneer in water for 5-10 mins before using them for gravy so that they become soft & spongy. You can replace paneer with tofu for vegan preferences.
  • Curd – Take thick curd, I used homemade curd. If the curd is watery or runny then the gravy may turn watery too.
  • Spice Powders – Spice powders include turmeric powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala powder.

Serving & Storing Suggestion

Serve hot as a starter or with roti or pulao. Paneer Fry keeps well in room temperature for a day. I would not recommend storing it after cooking – you can marinade and store in fridge for 2 days and shallow fry as and when needed.

FAQS

1.Does slicing the paneer this way mandatory?

Yes as the marinade nicely coats the paneer in thin slices than thick block cubes so I would suggest to slice it thin for this recipe.

2.Can I alter the spice powders?

Yes absolutely – You can add kasoori methi, chat masala powder, tandoori masala powder or any other spice powders as per your taste preference.

3.Can I tawa toast the paneer?

Yes you can toast in dosa tawa with less oil if you prefer to make it low fat. The only difference is it will not be as crispy as the shallow fried ones otherwise it will still taste soo good.
