I had few vegetable and a piece of paneer lying in my fridge. I was thinking of making something for my family which they all can enjoy. Recently I made Asian Vegetable Stir Fry so didn’t want to prepare anything with similar flavour. I came up with this delicious paneer veg pan fry. Prepared fresh spice blend which took this dish to the next level. My family finished it in no time :). We ate this pan fry just by itself. This recipe serves 3 people.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Medium potato – 4 to 5
Red and Orange or any colour pepper – 1 each
Mushroom – 6 to 7
Paneer – 200 gm
Lemon juice – tbsp
Oil for cooking
For Spice blend
Cumin seeds – 2 tsp
Fennel seeds – 2 tsp
Coriander seeds – 2 tbsp
Whole black pepper – 1 tsp
Star anise – 1 to 2
Amchur powder – tbsp
Chat masala – 1 tsp
Salt to taste
1. To make spice blend, dry roast cumin seeds, fennel seeds, coriander seeds, black pepper and star anise in a pan for 2 minutes. Let the roasted spices cool down at room temperature and then grind all the spices in dry grinder to a fine powder. When ready, add amchur powder, chat masala and salt to this spice mix. Mix well. You can make extra spice blend and store it for future use, it will save time when you make this dish next time (I can guarantee you will make this again and again 🙂 ).
4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in cast iron or nonstick pan. When oil is hot, saute mushroom cubes for 2-3 minutes on low to medium heat. Remove cooked mushroom cubes in a plate. Continue stir frying broccoli, red pepper, green pepper and then paneer cubes separately in small batches. Saute each vegetable and paneer until you see they are golden or slight brown. It will take 2-3 minutes to saute each vegetable and paneer batch. Cut boiled potato in big chunks and saute until it is golden from all sides.
