Cheese Paneer Ghotala

I made two new paneer dishes that I made for Diwali, and even though they look similar, they are very different when you taste them. I always cut the paneer in cubes, but these recipes are made with grated paneer. This difference make the dishes creamier and softer.

Cheese Paneer Ghotala

2 tbsp Butter + 1 tsp Oil or 3 tbsp of ghee
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
3 Garlic crushed
1Ginger grated (2.5cm)
1 tbsp chives chopped
1 Onion chopped 
1 tsp Coriander chopped 
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Coriander seeds grinded
1 tsp Cumin seeds grinded
1 1/2 tsp garam masala
2 Tomatoes chopped
300 grams  Spinach Chopped 
1 tsp Kashimiri Chili Powder
150 Grams Paneer grated
1/4 cup plain yogurt

In a pot, heat the butter and oil, and sautee all the ingredients of my list above in the same order up to the garam masala. Simmer them at very low temperature to extract the flavors and aroma. Add the chopped tomatoes, the spinach and chili powder, stir it well. Then add the grated paneer and yogurt, and correct it for salt. Let it simmer at low temperature for 5 minutes. Serve it war with basmati rice and naan. ENJOY!


  1. I'm always intrigued by the variety of spices that goes into Indian cooking. This looks so delicious!

  2. Judging from all the wonderful spices that you have used here, I bet this tastes very flavourful!

  3. I remember the first time I bought paneer I had to go to an Asian store to find it. Now you can get it at Costco!
