Corn Capsicum and Paneer Masala

This is my first marathon and I am thoroughly enjoying it. We are into the 3rd day of the blogging marathon and I am posting under the theme Currys in a Hurry. Here is my post for Day 3.

Every day, I have to prepare some curry for my husband’s lunch box. And he generally likes his curry to have some gravy or at least semi gravy. As I prepare the same thing for my daughter’s lunch box also, I try to incorporate veggies which my daughter likes – else the box will come back untouched. Since my daughter loves paneer and sweet corn, I make this dish quite often. It is a simple and healthy curry which goes very well with rotis and parathas. Let’s get to the recipe:


Serves 2 - 3

What you’ll need:

1. Boiled Sweet Corn Kernels – 1 Cup
2. Paneer – 150 gms, cubed
3. Capsicum – 1 big, chopped into small pieces
4. Onion – 2 medium, finely chopped
5. Tomato Puree – ½ cup
6. Ginger Garlic paste – ½ tsp
7. Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
8. Turmeric Powder – ¼ tsp
9. Coriander Powder – 1 tsp
10. Chilly Powder – 1 tsp (adjust according to taste)
11. Garam Masala Powder – ½ tsp
12. Kasoori Methi – 1 tblsp
13. Salt to taste
14. Sugar – ½ tsp
15. Oil – 2 tsps

Method

Heat a Kadai with oil, add the cumin seeds. Once they change color add the chopped onions and sauté for 2 minutes. Next add the ginger garlic paste and sauté till the onions turn translucent. Add in the chopped capsicum and sauté for a few minutes. Next add the spice powders – Turmeric, Chilly and Coriander Powder, Saute for a min. (If you feel that the mixture is sticking to the bottom add a spoon or two of water). Next put it in the tomato puree and sauté till the mixture comes together. Now, add the boiled sweet corn and paneer cubes. Add salt, sugar, and garam masala. Stir well. Add about ½ cup of water and kasoori methi. Cover and simmer for a few minutes.



Enjoy this yummy curry with hot phulkas or parathas.
