Achari Paneer

Ever Since i saw this in Aipi blog it was in my mind.I was waiting for right time and tried yesterday.It came out perfect and went really well with chappati/roti.Its easy to put together and taste great.The only change i made is omitting onion and garlic and rest i followed the same.

Recipe Source : Achari Paneer by Aipi.
Ingredients :
Paneer : 2 cups(cubed)
Tomato : 1 medium
Ginger : 1 tbsp(grated)
Panchphoran : 1tbsp(mixture of mustard,Cumin,Fennel,Fenugreek,Nigella seeds)
Oil : 2tbsp(I used Olive Oil)
Salt : as needed
Hing : a pinch
Whole Red Chilli : 2

Masala Powder :
Turmeric Powder :  1/4tsp
Red Chilli Powder : 1/2tsp
Coriander Powder : 2tsp
Garam Masala : 1tsp
Amchur Powder : 1/2tsp
Mango Pickle : 1tsp
Lemon Juice : 1tbsp
Cilantro : for Garnish

In a kadai,heat oil and add panchphoran,hing and whole red chilli.Let it fry.
Add in tomato,salt,ginger and fry until soft.
Add the powder expect pickle and fry for a minute.
Add the Paneer and pickle and stir well.
Add lemon juice and give a stir.
Adjust salt and spices and garnish with coriander leaves.
Enjoy with Chappati/roti.

Note :
Dont skip the Panchphoran since it takes the dish to a new well.
If you find the masala dry add little water to get a semi-dry gravy.
