BM #86 Week 4 Day 2 

This is a quick and easy dish to prepare in a jiffy. It is a go-to lunch box dish when I run out of vegetables or ideas :)

In a simple everyday meal pictured above, I have Paneer Methi Chaman, Roti, Salad, Rice and Kale Perugupachadi/ Raitha.

There are numerous versions and methods used for this Paneer methi chaman but I love this version the best.

Ingredients - 

Paneer, shredded 1 cup
Onion, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato, finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 tsp
Methi leaves, finely chopped and cooked 3/4 cup
Coriander powder 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Salt and Sugar as needed
Red Chili powder as needed
Milk 1/4 cup
Seasoning (Cooking Oil 1 Tbsp,Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp)

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan add oil and cumin seeds. After they crackle, saute ginger-garlic paste for a few seconds and then saute onions until golden brown.

Add in the tomatoes, turmeric, red chili powder, salt and sugar along with a cup of water. Let it boil and the mixture come together. Cover and let it cook for a few minutes.

Add in the cooked methi leaves and shredded paneer. Mix well and let the flavors blend for a few minutes.

Add milk to the simmering mixture let it come to a boil, sprinkle garam masala, cover and remove from heat after a couple minutes.

Serve with roti/naan.


Preparation Time 25 minutes
Serves 3-4

  18. I like the combination of paneer and methi, made a rice dish with these two some time ago. Curry looks yummy and healthy dish for sure.

  19. I made a version of paneer chaman for a previous BM, but this recipe is so eays to make whereas I tried a more complicated version. Addition of methi sounds so yum. Let me try this version of yours.
