Undoubtedly, the Indian Paneer gravies can’t be missed during any special gathering. Well, there’s nothing wrong if you continue relishing shahi paneer. But, at the same time, the foodie inside you can’t resist the Peshawari flavours once tasted.
If you love Shahi Paneer, you probably haven’t heard about this one.
As the name suggests, the smack of the Peshawari Paneer is quite inspired by the cooking techniques of Peshawar (a place in Pakistan). They say that more the perseverance, better the cooking results. A special white paste is prepared to add that specific punch. It includes medium onions, cashew nuts, garlic, ginger, cardamoms, cloves, bay leaf, green chillies, chopped, fresh curd, fresh cream, ghee, and salt. See, the list is so long, that’s why the paste offers such unique flavourings.
Patience is the key, my friend. The process isn’t finished yet. The manually ground paste of coriander seeds and dry red chillies, sauté, and the white paste you just prepared is fried. And then follows the boiled mixture of the coriander, chilli powder and one-fourth cup of water. Finally, the turn of adding paneer comes along with some salt and sugar. After a few minutes of cooking, add cream and the taste of Peshawar is all yours.
Since, we understand, your terribly occupied schedule may never give you enough time to prepare this paneer gravy, let Chowki have the privilege of doing it for you.
