Cottage Cheese In Red Capsicum Gravy/Paneer in Red Bellpepper Gravy

Paneer, this fantastic Indian cottage cheese is our family favourite. We love this calcium rich Indian cheese in anything as anything. Obviously my fridge or either my freezer will definitely have enough paneer cubes to cook up. If you have paneer in your fridge trust me you make a couple of delicious dishes within few minutes. Since this cottage cheese is quite versatile you can do anything with it. From starter to dessert, you can make fantabulous dishes out of this Indian cheese.If you go through my recipe index, am sure you can see many varieties of dishes i have cooked out with this paneer.


Actually i was searching for a simple gravy to have with some rotis few days back, instead of preparing the usual gravies with paneer, i picked this gorgeous looking gravy from Pari's space. Since i had a red capsicum in my fridge, seriously i want to give a try to this simple, quick and completely oil free gravy for our dinner.
This gravy takes hardly less time to get ready and this eye catching gravy suits prefect as a side dish with rotis or else with simple pulaos. However we enjoyed this gravy with stove topped whole wheat naans for our dinner and very simply loved it.


1no Red bellpepper/Red Capsicum (chopped)
1/3cup Cashewnuts
2nos Green cardamoms
3nos Green chillies
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/4kg Paneer (cubed)
Salt

Bring boil enough water, add the chopped bellpepper,cashewnuts,green cardamoms, green chillies.

Cook everything under the veggies turns soft, put off the flame.

Keep aside and grind as fine paste once they gets cool.

Heat a pan, add the grounded paste,paneer,red chilly powder,salt, cook everything in simmer until the gravy gets thick.

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve with rotis, naans or kulchas.

Sounds a very interesting gravy! I love smell & texture of roasted bellpepper.. so I'll possibly roast them first before grinding to make a gravy :) Lovely idea...
