shahi paneer

The simple Shahi Paneer recipe

shahi paneerMom was not at home and I had two choices, go eat outside or cook at home. I decided to cook. With not much time in hand and already feeling hungry I decided to make something simple,, quick and delicious. Since I don’t know much about spices combination I just buy ready to use spice mix. Usually these packed spices are not the best option if you are trying to get the best out of your dish but for some recipes it just works equally well. For example if you want to make a chicken recipe, stay away from packed spices. Anyway sticking to our topic here are the stuff that you will need for shahi paneer:

 

  • MDH Shahi Paneer masala – 4 tea spoon
  • Amul Malai Paneer – 250 gms
  • Cooking oil – 1 cup
  • Two medium size onions
  • Tomato puree 150gms
  • Cashew nuts - 4
  • Salt
  • Heavy Milk Cream – 1 cup

 

Method:

I had paneer packet kept in freezer so if you are also using a frozen packet, cut open the packet and fill it with lukewarm water and keep it aside for 30 minutes. Make paste of onions in a grinder and keep it in a bowl. Now heat cooking oil in shallow pan and fry this onion paste till it start changing color and becomes slightly orange.  Now put tomato puree and fry for few minutes. Now put shahi paneer masala and again fry, here you can put little water if the gravy becomes too thick. Add salt according to your taste, 1 tsp works for me. Let it cook and in mean time make the paste of cashew nuts with little water. Once the masala is cooked well, the oil will separate from gravy. At this point add the cashew nut paste and mix gravy well. Now add some water (about 2 cup) and let the gravy cook for 5 minutes. Once done, put paneer and milk cream and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Your delicious shahi panner is ready! Enjoy it with naan or plain rice.

 

volvo road roller

At last I can put 5th gear

We live in a rented house allotted to my Dad but soon we will be shifting to our own house, that is almost done now and only little finishing work is left there to be done. However since years one long stretch of road that lead to the construction site of my new house was so bad that one cannot drive above 3rd gear. After much delay the road is finally getting made properly and I was happy to see the fast pace work going there and even when the road is only partially done, now I can drive in 5th gear and save some fuel. There was a Volvo road roller which was doing its job of leveling road at much faster rate than older model road rollers did. Normally it would take about 10min to reach there from my friends house but today it took only 2min and 11 seconds!! I know this precisely because my friend was making video all the way and it was just a 2min 11 sec video. We were surprised to see how quickly we reached the spot.

My personal blog born again

I started blogging years back in 2007 and at that time I was new to blogging and decided to start my blog with a free web host. That blog on free host lasted for quite long and me and that owner of that free host became good friends. I even moderated his forum for sometime. After few years I could not give time to his forum and neither my personal blog. This was the time when I had purchased few domains and I was running blogs on them purely for writing articles that made me money. It went all great for some year and in mean time my webdesign work was improving as I was learning lots of things from internet and my computer classes too. This is going to be a long story which I will tell later and I must finish here as its quite late night now and I am feeling tired. Long story in short. what I really wanted to tell was that in my busy life I forgot about my personal blog that I had on free host, so today I decided to use my real name domain that is hashimkhan.com to use it as my weblog website.
