Corn Paneer Sabji | Dinner Diaries

Hey Everyone, How are you all? Today I am sharing corn paneer sabji recipe with you all. This post is coming to you all from the airport, yes you read it right! While I am in my transit country waiting for my connecting flight, which is few hours, I thought why not utilize my time and get yet another quick and easy and simple recipe for you guys? If you have been following my blog, you must have known by now that I like recipes that are more quick and easy with few ingredients as compared to more intricate recipes, for me those are for special occasions. So without further blabbering, let's just go through the ingredients and how-to quickly.

Ingredients:

  • Sweet corn kernels—2 cups
  • Paneer (Indian cottage cheese)—about 2 cm cubes; 250 gm
  • Onion, paste—1 medium
  • Tomato, purèed—2 medium
  • Green chilies, finely chopped—1-2 depending on your taste
  • Ginger and garlic, grated—1 in. piece and 3-4 cloves, respectively
  • Full cream, optional—about 1/2 cup, you can use whole milk also instead
  • Oil—2 tbsp
  • Salt—as per taste
  • Indian spices—turmeric, red chili powder, garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder
  • Cinnamon stick—1/2 in. long
  • Cardamom—2
  • Fresh coriander, chopped—few sprigs

Method:

  • Take a flat pan and heat oil in it on medium-low heat.
  • As soon as oil is heated, add cinnamon stick and cardamom followed by green chilies, grated ginger and garlic, and onion paste. Sautè it till it turns golden brown and oil is separated.
  • Now add tomato purée to the pan and blend with the onion paste.
  • Add all the remaining spices (listed in no. 10) and mix everything. Let this cook for about 2 min. or till the oil separates.
  • Add corn kernels to the pan and give a gentle mix so that everything blends in and let it cook covered on medium-low heat for about 4-5 min.
  • In the mean time, take a shallow flat pan and slightly roast the paneer cubes till the edges turn golden brown. Take them off heat on an absorbent paper.
  • Check the corn kernels, they should be fully cooked (soft and no raw taste) by now, add paneer cubes to this pan and mix with a very light hand not breaking the paneer cubes followed by full cream.
  • Let it cook covered for a minute and then transfer to a bowl, garnish with some coriander and serve it hot with some rice or chapati or naan.

What's your favorite preparation of paneer? I really hope you guys give this recipe a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
