How to make Mango Paneer

  1. Cut the paneer in 10 to 12 large or medium pieces.
  2. Take the mango, press from evenly from all the sides till it turns soft uniformly.
  3. Remove the eye of the mango and squeeze it very well so as to collect the pulp in a deep bowl.
  4. Combine the mango pulp and curd in a blender and blend till smooth.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan, add the paneer pieces and sprinkle a pinch of salt over it.
  6. Saute the paneer for 2 minutes on a medium flame till the outer crust starts to change color. Remove from the pan and keep aside.
  7. In the same pan heat the remaining oil, add bay leaf, cinnamon and whole red chilies, stir for 30 seconds.
  8. Add the mustard seeds. When the seeds crackle add grated ginger and stir for another 1 minute on a medium flame.
  9. Add the grated coconut, mix well and stir for another 2 minutes, or till the grated coconut started to change the color to brown.
  10. Add the Paneer and mix well.
  11. Add 1/2 cup of water and cover with a lid and let it cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
  12. Remove the lid, add the mango pulp and curd, mix well.
  13. Add cumin seeds powder and cook for another minute on a low flame.
  14. Finally, add sugar and salt. Cook for another 3 minutes. If required, add some water. The gravy should be thick and the color should be golden yellow.
  15. Take the green chillies and slit them vertically. Serve garnished with green chilies.

My Tip:

You can use less amount of oil, because a lot of oil will ooze out from Paneer itself. Use fully ripe mango only, to get the desired effect. The dish should be mildly sweeter. It should not be spicy and hot. Use more sugar if required, especially if the curd is sour, then you may need to use a bit of salt and sugar to make it perfect.
