Almonds are one of the most nutritious of all nuts..Almonds are low in saturated fat and contain many other protective nutrients - calcium and magnesium - for strong bones, vitamin E and compounds called phytochemicals, which may help protect against cardiovascular disease and even cancer.If you're pregnant, or thinking about it, almonds are a great source of the folic acid you need!!!!!Almonds contain more magnesium than oatmeal or even spinach. Build strong bones and teeth with the phosphorus in almonds.Paneer is quite easy to make at home. Bring 2 litres of fresh whole milk to the boil. Add 2 table spoons of vinegar or lemon juice or curd and stir well. Put aside. After the milk has curdled, wrap it in a clean muslin cloth, rinse with fresh water and drain well. Form a ball and place it under a heavy saucepan for approx. 20 minutes. 200 g of your paneer is ready. I prepared this Badam paneer sterday for dinner, they really turned out delicious...I followed this creamy gravy from Medha' Kaju Paneer but i used almonds instead of cashew..also i skipped capsicum n methi leaves..
1cup Paneer cubes
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
2tbsp Almond powder
2cups Milk r cream
1no Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies
Heat oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds n let the splutter..meanwhile make a fine paste with the ingredients under the list ( to grind)..once the cumin seed starts spluttering add the onion paste n cook until the raw smell goes on..just do this in simmer, as we went the gravy to be white in colour, dont be rush to cook the onion paste.. add the paneer cubes n fry them for a while..
Mix the almond powder with milk n add this to the pan with enough salt..can add more milk r cream if need to be more creamy...
Serve them immediately..An Easy Gravy for rotis, parathas...this gravy turns thick if u prepare them few hours before dinning..just add more milk n bring to boil if they r really thick..
