Chatpata Paneer

on November 24, 2014

When I have a sudden craving to have paneer, this is what I do πŸ™‚ Just throw in all the masalas available on my kitchen shelf, Toss in the paneer and have it right away πŸ˜€ Crazy ain’t I ? Well I love paneer, being a pure non vegetarian. Β To me veg food means lots of paneer and mushroom πŸ˜› This one’s an easy peasy recipe invented by me for the sudden cravings of paneer. Try it, And am sure you will love it too πŸ™‚


  • Paneer : 250 gms (I used amul)
  • Coriander powder : 2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder : 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli powder : 1 tsp
  • Chaat masala : 1 tsp
  • Yoghurt : 1tbsp
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Kasoori methi : 1tsp
  • Olive oil : 2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds : 1/2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander leaves for garnish


  • Heat oil in a nonstick kadai, Splutter the cumin seeds and add coriander powder, turmeric and chilli powders and saute for a min till the rawness fades away. Now add the paneer and yogurt, salt and mix well.
  • Go on tossing continuously until the paneer is well coated and looks dry.
  • Switch off the gas, Sprinkle kasoori methi, Squeeze a lime and chat masala.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot !!
