Achari Paneer

During this ganpati festival, there was Recipe contest in my Complex. The theme given was any recipe made by using "Paneer". I tried for some creative recipes, but could not manage due to shortage of time. Then suddenly I remember that very often we have "Achari Khichadi" for dinner. So with the help of pickle, I tried to create some new recipe.

In this recipe, there is addition of "Achar" or mango pickle to the regular gravy. But still the taste is amazing.

Ingredients :
1/2 Kg. Paneer
3-4 Onions
2-3 tomatoes / Tomato puree
2 tspns ginger-garlic paste
1 tspn red chilly powder
2-3 tspns Mango pickle
1 tspn garam masala powder
4-5 spoons Oil
Salt to taste

Preparation :
Cut paneer into small cubes and fry till it becomes golden.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add chopped onions to the oil and fry till it becomes transparent.
After that chopped tomatoes / tomato puree to it.
Stir the mixture for 10 minutes
Switch off the gas and keep it aside for cooling.

After cooling add Mango pickle to the mixture and grind the mixture finely.

Now head 1-2 tspn oil in a pan and add Ginger Garlic paste, Garam Masala, Red Chilly Powder to it.
After that add the mixture of onions, tomatoes and pickle to it.
Stir it for 5 minutes
Now put fried paneer pieces into the gravy and let it cook for 5 minutes.
In the end salt and finely chopped corriander

Tip : Garnish it with grated cheese or paneer.
