Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the paneer in the hot oil until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the paneer to a plate lined with paper towels, reserving the oil in the skillet.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet. Fry the onions, bell peppers, ginger, and garlic in the hot oil until the onions are browned, about 5 minutes. Season with the garam masala, turmeric, and fennel; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir the tomatoes, ketchup, and salt into the mixture; continue cooking until the tomatoes are tender and the oil separates from the gravy. Pour the water into the skillet and stir. Return the paneer to the skillet; raise heat to high and cook until the gravy is thick, about 10 minutes. Garnish with cilantro to serve.

Great recipe, but had to substitute the paneer because I couldn't find it at the grocery store. Thanks for the recipe!

I found this very bland. I will not be making it again. I still gave it 3 stars because it may have been tastier if we used panner instead of tofu.

Great recipe, but had to substitute the paneer because I couldn't find it at the grocery store. Thanks for the recipe!

I love this recipe! I added some extra fresh ginger to make it just right. I think I need to try a different pan because when I try to brown the paneer it mostly sticks to the pan. This recipe h...

Followed recipe exactly, and it was delicious. Thanks!

To the person who used tofu instead of paneer, your "bland" review was sort of a no brainer. Paneer is all the good stuff from milk etc. that would make this dish. If you are going to review i...

Wonderful flavor, but I think I may have overcooked the cheese. Better if just seared on all sides and not quite browned so it can still melt a bit... oops! I accidentally added whole fennel see...

This was very delicious, just amazing. I followed the recipe exactly, highly recommended.

I love this recipe and have made it several times. I tried to cut corners once to save time by not frying the cheese first. This step is crucial, do not skip it! The fried cheese is so much bett...

Lovely recipe :)
