Cottage Cheese or Paneer is my staple. I can have it everyday. Full fat fresh paneer is great for nutrition and weight loss too. I am sharing this recipe which is my go to recipe. It does not need too many ingredients and preparation time is less than 20 minutes. Chopping time is negligible, I like that πŸ˜‰

How to make this yummyΒ Low Carb Creamy Cottage Cheese Recipe

  • CutΒ onion and tomato. You need not chop them to bits, you will see why πŸ˜‰
  • Heat wok and add ghee to it. Wait till it gets heated. You can use non stick pan. I try to make my dishes in iron wok since my haemoglobin always dances around, and iron wok provides additional iron to my food.
  • Add onion to the wok and cook for 5 minutes till onion becomes light golden. Add all spices.
  • Add tomato and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the contents of your wok to a blender, add water and blend till you get consistent gravy. That’s why no chopping required πŸ˜‰ . You can also blend onion and tomato separately first and then cook onion first and then add tomato. I cook and then blend together to save time πŸ˜› .
  • Transfer the gravy back to the wok.
  • Meanwhile, saute paneer in a pan using 1 tsp butter. I saute paneer side by side while preparing the gravy.
  • Transfer paneer to gravy and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add cream and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Relish a bowl of this dish alone or with brown rice , its yummm πŸ˜€
