Panner Pepper Masala

Watched the movie Talaash. It was disappointing to see supernatural in a movie backed by an actor like Amir Khan -  thinking Khan. I would never have watched it had I the tiniest of clue of the movie having a supernatural theme. Come on Amir, it is so disappointing. Wonder what he to say on this one.

I had a gallon of milk left over from the previous  week. I turned it into Panner. Just that the home made Panner is not as sturdy as the ones off the store shelf. But the crumbled Panner was just as good in this dish. It is a take on the Panner Burji.

We will need,

Panner  1.5 cups (crumbled or chopped coarsely)
Ghee 1 tbsp
Mustard 1/4 tsp
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Fennel seeds 1/2 tsp
Onion 1 medium chopped
Tomato 1 medium chopped
Chilli powder 1/2 tsp (more if preferred)
Dhania powder 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Capscium / Bell peppers 2 medium
Milk 1/4 cup
Garam Masala  1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Lime juice to taste
Coriander fresh a handful

  • Heat ghee in a Kadai. Throw in the mustard, Jeera  and the fennel seeds. Once they crackle,  throw in the onions, saute till the onions are soft.
  • Throw in the chilli  powder, dhania powder and turmeric. Saute till the spices are fragrant.Throw in the tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes are soft and mushy.
  • Throw in the bell peppers and saute for a few minutes. Throw in the Panner. Mix everything gently.
  • Pour in the milk, add garam masala and simmer till the favors combine.  
  • Adjust salt, lime juice and coriander. Serve with Rotis.

Home made Paneer, dish looks yummy.

So Talaash is a washout? I read reviews that didn't differ from your opinion much either :-(

Sort of disturbing movie Talaash! Might be a commercial success but did not like the theme more so after the Newtown episode :(

Thanks Archy and Bindu

Haven't seen Talaash. Now, after reading your review, will have to give a second thought.

Couple of suggestions:
1. You need a proof-reader ;-)
2. It's desirable if you mention the size and shape the vegetables need to be chopped as- finely chopped / cubes / long / rings, etc.

Thanks much for your suggestion. You are right I need a proof-reader. I do go through my draft a few times but mistakes due to oversight keeps happening.

About the shape and size of veggies, I will try to improvise on it. Never bothered about it much. To think of it, it could be so overwhelming to a novice.
