Paneer Dhaniya

P1030718
Hi friends.
First of all let me apologize in advance as I might not be able to visit you that frequently for next few days as my internet connection is facing a lot of problem. I will also try to acknowledge your entries as much as possible but please understand and bear with me if I am not able to do so.
To add to my agony, I am down with viral fever so avoided cooking in the morning as I was alone but evening I had to cook as my growing kids  and DH would require a proper meal. But the problem did not end here… I did not have veggies at home and I am yet to pick up my monthly grocery so no legumes too Sad.
My frustration got reduced after I saw some cottage cheese packs in my chiller. I wanted to make a quick recipe and finally in all the agony my grey cells helped me concoct this simple to make, creamy and mildly flavored curry. After tasting it I thought this would be perfect with Naan but I managed to make rotis, had a great difficulty rolling them with my running nose…but managed somehow.
This curry is surely not people who like very spicy food as it has very few flavors going into it but surely is extremely delectable. One can increase the spice level by adding more chilies or pepper but I liked it this way. This will surely be a big hit with kids as it was with mine. Now, I am just waiting to try this with Naan.

Ingredients
400gms Cottage Cheese cubed
2 onions finely chopped
7-8 green chilies
1 tsp white pepper
2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
1/2 cup chopped coriander
4 green cardamoms
2 tbsp clarified butter
about 1/2 cup yogurt
about 3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup low fat fresh cream
1 tsp corn starch
a pinch of garam masala (optional)
salt to taste
Method
Heat the butter and put the green cardamom.
P1030702
Once the cardamom crackles add the ginger-garlic paste, saute till the raw smell disappears.
P1030703
Add the onions and green chilies and saute till the onions  are lightly brown.
P1030704P1030705 
Add the cubed cottage cheese and saute it nicely in the onions so that it imbibes the basic flavors.
P1030707
Now add salt to taste, white pepper and half of the chopped coriander. Mix thoroughly.
P1030708
In the yogurt add the cornstarch and beat lightly, mix this to the cottage cheese. Keep the flame low all this while and mix properly, cornstarch prevents the curdling of yogurt. Cook for about a minute.

P1030710
Add the milk and bring the curry to a boil then cover and cook for a few more minutes.
P1030711
P1030712 
Once the curry thickens, switch off the flame and add cream, garam masala and remaining coriander.
