Cabbage & Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) Curry

          Usually when I make paneer dishes at home, it's mostly palak paneer ( spinach with Indian cottage cheese). This time I didn't have spinach in hand and so I tried this Cabbage & Paneer stir fry, I used homemade paneer but the store bought one also tastes good, I also added some capsicum and kasoori methi ( dried fenugreek leaves) to add a little more flavor to the dish. It turned out to be very delicious and flavorful and a great combination with both rotis and rice..

Need To Have
  • Cabbage - 2 cups shredded
  • Capsicum - 1 sliced
  • Tomatoes - 2 sliced
  • Paneer Cubes - 1 cup
  • Grated Ginger - 1 tablespoon
  • Red Chilly Powder - 3/4th teaspoon
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Garam Masala - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Kasoori Methi - 2 tablespoons crushed
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt - to taste


          Heat some oil, add the cumin seeds, once it starts sizzling, add the cabbage and the capsicum, saute for a minute, then add the tomato pieces, saute for another minute.

          Now add the grated ginger, turmeric and chilly powders and salt, keep sauteing it for about 5 minutes. When dry, add the paneer pieces, mix well, lastly add the garam masala and the kasoori methi and give one final mix. Serve it warm with either rotis or rice, or even use it as a filling for sandwiches.

Do not overcook the cabbage and capsicum, they should retain a slight crunch.
When mixing in the paneer, be careful not to break them.
Both kasoori methi and garam masala are available in Indian grocery stores ( this info is for my Non-Indian friends).
