Getting neighbours together to bond over food? That is what Joanne and her neighbours from block 119B of Rivervale Road did for their own cookbook. Godhuli shares her delicious vegetarian recipe.
Time needed: 45 minutes
Serves: 3 people
- 1 cup paneer (cottage cheese)
- 2 potatoes (chopped and cubed)
- 3 to 4 cups water
- A few dried chillies
- 2 to 3 bay leaves
- 1 tsp cardamom
- A few green chillies
- 2 to 3 tbsp ginger garlic paste
- 2 tbsp Royal Garam Masala
- A sprinkle of Kitchen King seasoning
- 1/2 tomato (chopped)
- 1 small bowl of frozen peas
- 1 to 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
- 1 to 2 tbsp sugar
- A sprinkle of salt
- A sprinkle of pepper (optional)
- Handful of coriander leaf (garnish)
Note: The Royal Garam Masala and the Kitchen King seasoning can be bought from Indian grocery stores.
- Fry paneer in oil. Close the lid when oil starts to splatter. Flip the paneer cubes on other sides to cook them evenly. Once cooked, remove from the pan and put aside on a plate.
- Next, put in the chopped potatoes. Add a sprinkle of salt. Mix well. Add in pepper to taste, if you wish to.
- Add in half a cup of water so that the potatoes will boil quicker.
- Add the spices i.e. dried chillies, bay leaves, cardamom, into the pan.
- Following that, combine the green chillies, tomatoes and add ginger garlic paste.
- Cover the lid for 15 minutes so that it will cook faster.
- After 15 minutes, add in Royal Garam Masala and Kitchen King seasoning. Cook on low heat.
- Add 1 cup water and peas to the pan.
- Add in 1 to 2 tbsp of tomato ketchup (or you could use tomato puree instead). Put the paneer back in the pan.
- Add 2 cups of water. Add 1 to 2 tbsp sugar (depending on how sweet you want it to be). Once it starts to boil, turn off the stove.
- Garnish with coriander and the dish is ready to be served!
