How to make Paneer Lababdar

  1. To make Paneer Lababdar heat oil in a pan.
  2. Add onions, ginger paste, garlic paste and sauté them. Add turmeric powder, garam masala, chilli flakes, salt and mix well chopped tomatoes and sauté well making sure the tomatoes get a little mushy.
  3. Add the mixture to a mixture jar (make sure the mixture isn’t too hot before grinding). Add water and make a fine paste.
  4. Empty the paste into the same pan where you sauteed them without adding oil. Add lemon juice, paneer, coriander leaves, kasuri methi and mix it well.
  5. Paneer Lababdar is ready to serve with rotis/chapathi or naan or even simple jeera rice.

My Tip:

You can add 1 tbsp low fat cream and add 1/2 tsp butter while you saute the onions. For a rich flavour you can even add few soaked cashew nuts while grinding. I have skipped all this as it was a lighter/healthier version.
