For the second day of BM# 45, under North Indian Side Dishes, I have a Paneer Curry. Well, it is not possible that I skip out a paneer dish right, given how much my kids love Paneer Butter Masala. We end up making it at least once every week. Since we use homemade paneer, the paneer cubes are very soft and melt in the mouth experience.
I mostly get store-bought when I have to make the tandoor or Paneer tikkas, however, in recent times, I end up making a simple Curried Paneer Fries when I have excess Paneer on hand. Or you could make these Paneer 65 as well.
I was supposed to make Paneer Butter Masala the day before we were leaving for our vacation last week. I got delayed and by the time I came home, it was pretty late for an elaborate meal with PBM and Parotta. On top, I had to get my baggage done.
So the easiest dish that my kids would have loved to eat would naturally be Maggi. Konda has taken over making Maggi for a couple of months. She makes it all soupy and they all simply love sipping on their soupy Maggi.
Since it was decided for a Maggi night, I had to deal with the Paneer that was not used. I decided these Paneer Fries were the best bet. And before I could even think further, the snack got over. They always enjoy it so much. So coming to the dish for the day, this Paneer Curry is another variation that Amma makes when we get bored with the regular PBM.
She has been making it for a while now and I wondered how I have blogged about it. In fact, you won't believe me, I searched both my blogs a couple of times to ensure I am not repeating myself! I went ahead and decided to share this recipe, hoping this hasn't featured already,..:)
