A quick, easy and creamy gravy made with sour cream. A sure crowd pleaser, we did not know what to call this dish and then my husband came up with the name "Lazeez Paneer", I am not sure if there is a recipe out there for "Lazeez Paneer", if there is I would love to know and any suggestion on what to call this recipe would be great.

250 gms paneer (Cottage cheese), cut into 1 inch pieces
1 red capsicum, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 tomato, chopped
3 green chillies, chopped
1 inch ginger, grated
3 - 4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup sour cream (Can use thick sour curds too)
1 tsp corriander powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp channa masala powder
1/2 cup water or milk
salt to taste
Corriander leaves.


  1. Heat oil in a pan, add the onions, ginger, garlic and green chillies and cook till the onions are tender and transluscent.
  2. Add the capsicum and cook for another minute.
  3. Add the corriander powder, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and channa masala powder. Cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the tomatoes and cook till the oil seperates.
  5. Add the sour cream and cook for a minute.
  6. Add paneer and salt. Mix till the paneer is coated.
  7. Add water or milk for a richer gravy and let it come to a boil.
  8. Add the corriander leaves and serve with Roti, Parathas etc..
