Paneer with Coconut Milk Recipe Ingredients
Paneer with Coconut Milk Recipe Ingredients


  • 250 gm Paneer, cut into medium-sized cubes
  • 1 cup Spring Onions, finely chopped; only the green part
  • 250 ml Creamy Coconut Milk
  • 1 tbsp Ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Olive oil/Refined oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kali Mirch or Black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • Salt to taste
  • Water


In a sauce pan, boil 5 cups of water. Turn off the flame and put the paneer cubes in the water and close the lid. Wait for 10 minutes. Now strain and drain the water. Keep the paneer aside. This step is important as it prevents paneer from getting chewy.

Take a wok, put it on high flame. Pour oil, heat it. Lower the flame and add ginger-garlic paste. Saute for 30 seconds. Add paneer cubes to it. Saute for 2 minutes on high flame. Add 1 tea-spoon kali mirch powder, salt to taste and mix well.

Add coconut milk to the wok. Close the lid and cook till the coconut milk transforms into thick gravy. But it should be still flowy.

Now add spring onions and oregano. Mix them with gravy. Cook on high flame. Stir once or twice. The gravy will start thickening more. Switch off the gas stove.
