So last week I shared a vegetable coconut curry as well as list of my favourite suppers to make in the week.  Here is another recipe I wanted to share.  I was first introduced to Paneer when Mani's mom cooked it for me.  I have never looked back since.  Paneer is an Indian cheese, its quite rubbery but seriously tasty.  This is my favourite way to eat it.

When I tried to cook it for the first time I was not very successful but I have got it down to a tee and its a perfect mid-week meal if you want something easy and quick to whip together.

Paneer Curry

1 block of paneer cheese, cut up into small cubes
1 tin of plum tomatoes
1 pepper, finely sliced
1 onion, finely sliced
1 tspn cumin
1 tspn tumeric
1 tspn ground coriander
1/2 tspn salt
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
Olive oil for frying
A handful fresh coriander

Fry the onion in the oil for a few minutes and then add the cubed panner.
Fry until the paneer/onion begins to brown.
Add the peppers and the tinned tomatoes.  Squish the whole tomatoes to make it less chunky.
Add the spices and seasoning and leave to simmer for 30 minutes.
Taste and check if further seasoning is needed.

Remember you can add some chilli powder or fresh chilli's if you want an extra kick.

Serve with naan, rice or chapati/roti and sprinklings of fresh coriander.

Seriously - this is a delicious dish to make at home and beats any take-away curry I have had!

Happy cooking x
