Paneer Pasanda is a dish where Paneer triangles are stuffed with grated paneer,khoya/mawa and dry fruits. They are shallow fried to be put into a thick creamy gravy.
Paneer -10 medium /big triangles of paneer.
Grated Paneer-½ cup
Grated khoya-½ cup
Cashew and raisin (crushed)-¼ cup
Green chili-1 thinly sliced(optional)
Grated ginger-½ teaspoon.
Salt -a pinch of.
Corn flour-½ cup
Oil- for frying .
How we make stuffed Paneer triangles.
Mix all the ingredients for filling .
Take two paneer triangles and keep the filling mixture in between them .
Heat oil in non stick pan.
Mix corn flour with water.
Dip stuffed paneer triangles carefully to the corn flour batter and shallow fry it on slow flame.
While frying you need to keep two things in mind.
1- No deep frying. your paneer will be hard and effect will be ruined.
2-While turning the stuffed paneer you need ti be careful because other wise there is risk of dropping all of it in the oil.
I will strongly suggest you do it in a wide nonstick pan.
Keep fried paneer triangles aside.
