Paneer gravy with sweet corn recipe

Me and Mom share a very special relation- We are two giggly people chatting away to glory on insane topics and we always catch up on our special topic- food. If I try out anything special, she is the first one to know about it and she makes me feel special even for a small recipe. In this buzy world, she is the only soul who sincerely wants to know what I ate for the day and I love the bond we share :) - Over the weekend, I made paneer gravy with sweet corn and was explaining all about it to my mom (who as usual made me feel that I am the best cook in the world). She loved the whole concept and here I am blogging all about it....The gravy rocks with paneer and sweet corn and will make you fill up your plates for a generous third serving! Doesn't need too much effort and goes great with rice/rotis.


















What goes in??

Sweet corn kernel- 1 cup (boiled and tender)
Paneer (cubed) - 150 gms
Green bell pepper- 1 medium (sliced)
Garlic - crushed & chopped (4-5 cloves)
Ginger- grated (1/2 tsp)
Onions - 2 medium sized (finely chopped)
Tomatoes - 2 medium sized (finely chopped)
Cumin seeds- 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Salt according to taste
Oil for cooking

For the additional punch-
Coriander leaves (chopped)
Fresh cream (optional)
Kasoori methi leaves / dry fenugreek leaves (1 tsp)


Preparation-
  • In a wok/kadai, heat some oil.
  • Add cumin seeds and allow them to sputter.
  • Add onions and fry till translucent.
  • Add garlic and ginger and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and cook on a medium flame till they become mushy and blend well with onions.
  • Now comes the spices- add coriander powder, garam masala powder, red chilli powder.
  • Mix all the ingredients and cook till it the oil separates from masala and floats above.
  • Add a bit of water (not too much- around 1/4 cup or less).
  • Mix in the corn & bell peppers.
  • Add Kasoori methi leaves and allow the bell peppers to cook with the gravy.
  • Adjust salt according to your taste.
  • Add paneer cubes to the gravy and cook it on a low flame for few minutes.
  • Mix in the fresh cream (optional).
  • Garnish with coriander leaves!
