Chatpatta Paneer Yumm Yumm :-)

" Paneer " One of the favorites of all the Vegetarians and as my friends say - this is a substitute for Chicken in Vegetarian Dishes.(they are not wrong) :-P Chatpatta Paneer This came up when i was fasting on a lazy Sunday afternoon..thinking Wont a paneer taste good without Onion and Garlic??  Normally vrath (fasting) food are boring and sometimes tasteless.. Hence to bring in a bit of twist i tried something very simple and yet tasty. It made my day for sure, Paneer - we can always make a variety of dishes with different flavor, colors, styles... and so on. This dish is more like paneer tikka but without the tikka and onion, garlic. 
I loved it.. you can try and let me know how you feel about it?

Making this a healthier way lets add Olive Oil other than the normal refined Oil. To give it more taste i added loads of coriander leaves :)


Paneer                        - 8 Pieces Cut in cubes
Red Chille Powder      - 1 Tbsp
Turmeric Powder        - 1 Tsp
Coriander Powder      - 1/2 Tsp
Tomatoes                    -  2 Large Grated
Cumin Seeds              - 1/2 Tsp 
Chat Masala               - 1 Tsp
Olive Oil                     - 2 Tsp
A pinch of Garam Masala
Salt to taste
Coriander Leaves       - Chopped finely


Fry the Paneer lightly and set them aside.
Heat the pan with Olive Oil, add cumin seeds and once it crackling add the grated tomatoes.
Cook it for about a mint and then add the rest of the masalas and cook in simmer for about 5- 8 mints.

Finally add the Paneer and mix them well. You can either them in Grill and cook them or like i did just served it on plate garnishing with coriander leaves.
