Dilkush Paneer

BM # 50  Week 4  Day 3

For day 3 I have a paneer recipe which is a rich , delicious party dish.Every time I make paneer I want to try a new variation, and this is what I tried for our family Diwali dinner. Everyone had enjoyed this paneer so I decided to redo the same recipe. The puréed coconut and the cottage cheese lend a special touch to the dish and make it quite rich.Kasoori Methi has a unique flavor and takes this paneer to a different level. A recipe which can be featured in party menu.

2 onions
3-4 cloves garlic
1 small piece gingerr

Paste 2
6 blanched tomatoes, peeled and puréed
