Paneer In Bell Pepper Gravy

Continuing with my experiments in the kitchen using my fellow bloggers’ recipes, here comes second on the list which is Paneer (cottage cheese) in Bell Pepper Gravy. The first thing that struck me when I read this one was that there was no use of onion or garlic. These days there are the “no onion, no garlic” versions of possibly all kinds of foods but after a long long time did I come across a curry recipe which does without those two ingredients per se.

It was very important for me to try this one out as I have been raised in a household which did not use onion and garlic in their cooking and my parents still follow the same rule for religious reasons.

You can check out the original recipe at 

Things done different

I did not shallow fry the Paneer cubes or fry them at all. Just added them to the gravy and let them cook for a while.
