The above dish is Dhania Paneer, which is recently cooked in my kitchen. I had a bunch of fresh coriander leaves in my freeze. So I thought of using it and thereby, the idea came off . Actually, whenever I go to restaurant I like the smell of dhania chutney and it clicked me. Here I used the coriander leaves as well as its juicy stem to make a smooth paste along with green chilli. You might find similar recipes cooked by chefs but my recipe may not match it because this is absolutely my own creation. Dhania Paneer is a easy  dish and tasty too. Check the recipe below and try it @ your kitchen.


Dhania Paneer/ Coriander flavoured Cottage Cheese


Ingredients

Paneer (Cottage Cheese) – 200gm
Onion Paste – ½ cup
Ginger Paste – 3-4 teaspoon
Corriander leave & stem paste – ¾ cup
Dhania/Corriander powder – 3-4 teaspoon
Lime juice – 1 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder – 1 teaspoon
Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder – 11/2 teaspoon
Cinammon stick – ½ inch
Sugar
Salt to taste
Refined oil

Procedure

Cut the paneer in to cubes and sauté the pieces in refined oil with little salt & coriander powder.  Keep them aside. Heat oil in a pan and add a cinnamon stick and start frying the onion paste. Add some salt and sugar, which will enhance the taste of the gravy. When the onion paste turn brownish in color add ginger paste and all the dry spices. I added turmeric as it is a basic spice of Indian Cuisine. You can avoid it and then gravy will be dark greenish in color. Now add the coriander leaves & green chilli paste. Cook for few minutes covering with a lid. Add some warm water to make the gravy and add the panner cubes into it. Allow it to boil for 3-4 minutes. Put the lime juice now which will enhance the taste. I believe when you are cooking green leafy vegetables you should add lime juice for the tanginess instead of tomato. Switch of the gas and serve delicious Dhania Paneer with roti or rice.
