Paneer-pasanda-recipe

I think there are lots of versions of  Paneer pasanda recipe. The recipe I am sharing can be taken as paneer cutlets in a rich, creamy gravy. It can be a little bit of work but sure we can make for special occasions. The gravy and the cutlet is so rich and heavy that one can maximum have 2 pieces of cutlets along with little gravy. I slightly adapted this recipe from Tarla dalal. Let me share my own version of this paneer pasanda.

Paneer pasanda recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Side dish
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 35 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients for paneer cutlet


Paneer, crumbled  1 & 1/2 cups 
Maida  2 tblsp + 2 tblsp 
Pepper  1/2 tsp 
Green chilly  1, chopped 
Salt  As needed 
Bread crumbs (or 3 bread slices)  As needed 
Oil  As needed 

Ingredients for the gravy

Onion, sliced 1 & 1/2 cup
Cashews 8
Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp
Curd 1/2 cup
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Salt As needed
Oil 2 tblsp
Coriander leaves 1 sprig

Method

  1. Soften paneer cubes by immersing it in hot water for 10 minutes. Drain completely and then grind in a mixer to make crumble. In a bowl, mix paneer, pepper, chilli,salt and 2 tblsp maida. 2-paneer-cutlets
  2. Make  small cutlets of your choice of shape. I made it a little oblong. Make a thick paste out of 2 tblsp maida and water and dip the cutlets in the maida. Then coat it with bread crumbs and arrange in a plate.In case you don’t have bread crumbs, you can grind the bread slices to get fresh crumbs. Heat a non stick pan with oil drizzled. Cook the cutlets and cook both sides(drizzle oil when you flip) to golden brown. 3-paneer-cutlets
  3. For the gravy, fry ginger garlic paste, onion and cashew nuts until onions turn golden brown. Cool and grind to a smooth paste with a little bit of water. 1-paste
  4. Heat pan with oil and fry the ground paste for 3-4 minutes in medium flame. Add garam masala and red chilli powder and fry until oil separates. 4-gravy
  5. Add well beaten curd and mix well. Cook until oil separates from the gravy. Add another 3/4 cup of water and bring to boil.5-gravy
  6. Arrange the prepared cutlets in a bowl and pour the gravy over the cutlets. Garnish well with chopped coriander leaves.6-arrange

Notes

  • Make sure the gravy is not too thick. The gravy should be hot when you pour over the cutlets.
  • You can make the cutlets until coating them in the bread crumbs- the before day and refrigerate and make cutlets the next day along with gravy to make it easier.
  • You can also deep fry the cutlets.
  • Beat curd until smooth or the gravy will curdle.

You can enjoy this exotic side dish served with any mild pulavs or roti / naans.
