Baby Corn- Capsicum- Cottage Cheese aka Paneer Gravy/Subzi/Sabji

 This is a famous curry for it tastes amazing. The combo works amazingly well. You can choose any English Vegetables based on your preference. Some Veggies I have tried this recipe with is Broccoli, Mushrooms, Carrots, Beans, Cauliflower etc. Do the basic Gravy and add the Veggies as per your Taste.

Baby Corn - 10 pieces (Washed and cut into 2")
Capsicum - 1 (Washed and Cut into 2")
Paneer - 1 Packet or 200 Grams (Cut into Cubes)
Peas - a Handful
Onion - 1 (Large, Peeled and boiled )
Tomato - 1 (Medium, Boiled and Peeled)
Red Chilly powder - 1 Tablespoon
Coriander Powder - 1 Tablespoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 Teaspoon
Garam Masala - 1/4 Teaspoon
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1/2 Teaspoon
Oil - 2 Tablespoon
Vegetable Stock - 1 Cup (Optional)
Fresh Cream - 2 Tablespoon
Coriander Leaves - Few Sprigs for Garnish

  • In a Mixer, pulse the Tomato and Onion separately till they become a nice smooth paste.
  • In a Pan, warm some oil and add the Baby Corn and Paneer and cook till they get some nice colour on all sides.
  • This step is optional, if you don't want then you can skip this step.
  • If you plan to Pan roast the Baby Corn and Paneer, do it on Medium flame and don't move them around too much or else they may break.
  • Once you get nice colour remove them and keep them aside.
  • In the same pan, add 1 more tablespoon of oil and add the Onion paste and saute, and after a minute add the Tomato paste and saute.
  • Please be careful while adding/cooking the Onion - Tomato paste as they tend to splatter.
  • After 2 minutes of cooking it add Ginger Garlic paste and Dry masala Powders and saute.
  • Then add the capsicum and saute for a minute. Now add the vegetable stock or water and stir it well and add the tossed Baby Corn and Paneer, Peas.
  • Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes or the raw flavor is completely gone.
  • Switch off the flame and add the fresh cream and Coriander leaves.
  • Serve with Rice or Roti.
  • Adding vegetable stock gives a deep flavour to this dish. You can make your own vegetable stock (Will post a recipe soon) or use Storebought Stock.
  • I use Maggi Vegetable stock Tablet. I just soak the tablet in some water and Voila you get your stock.
