This is a paneer curry my mom makes in microwave. .I made it on stove top though.and it took me 15 minutes from start to finish.. went very well with ajwain paranthas.
I added gram flour, onion and carom seeds in wheat flour dough for the parathas and they came out awesome too.
Here is the recipe for the paneer curry in a hurry. It has lots of ginger which gives it a unique flavor.


  • Paneer(Cottage cheese) - 250 gms ( cut into cubes or triangles)
  • Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
  • Milk - 1 Cup
  • Curd - 1/2 cup
  • Cardamom(Choti elaichi)- 1
  • Ginger- 1 and half teaspoons( finely chopped).
  • Red chilli Powder-1 teaspoon
  • Turmeric Powder- 1/4th teaspoon
  • Salt- to taste
  • Tomato paste(optional) - 1 teaspoon
  • Green chillis- 2(chopped)


  • Heat oil in a Pan
  • Add Onion and fry till they become light brown in colour
  • Now add green chillies, cardamom and ginger and saute for another minute
  • Add Salt, turmeric powder and red chili powder, mix well.
  • Add curd and keep stirring till it is cooked and whiteness is gone.
  • Now add milk and paneer, cover and cook on low heat for few minutes.
  • In the end add tomato paste and cook for a while.(which is optional as it tastes great even without it ).

Enjoy with Parantha, puri or roti.
