Directions

  1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the paneer in the hot oil until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove the paneer to a plate lined with paper towels, reserving the oil in the skillet.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the skillet. Fry the onions, bell peppers, ginger, and garlic in the hot oil until the onions are browned, about 5 minutes. Season with the garam masala, turmeric, and fennel; cook and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir the tomatoes, ketchup, and salt into the mixture; continue cooking until the tomatoes are tender and the oil separates from the gravy. Pour the water into the skillet and stir. Return the paneer to the skillet; raise heat to high and cook until the gravy is thick, about 10 minutes. Garnish with cilantro to serve.

Great recipe, but had to substitute the paneer because I couldn't find it at the grocery store. Thanks for the recipe!

I found this very bland. I will not be making it again. I still gave it 3 stars because it may have been tastier if we used panner instead of tofu.

I love this recipe! I added some extra fresh ginger to make it just right. I think I need to try a different pan because when I try to brown the paneer it mostly sticks to the pan. This recipe has become a favourite in our house.

Wonderful flavor, but I think I may have overcooked the cheese. Better if just seared on all sides and not quite browned so it can still melt a bit... oops! I accidentally added whole fennel seed, so I compensated by adding an extra 1/2 tsp. of ground coriander in addition. I think I may also add more tomatoes, or a small can of whole tomatoes, cut up, if I make again. Delicious!

I used homemade paneer, which was delicious. The sauce itself was fine, though s bit sweet for my tastes. I liked the hint of fennel but would probably add some cayenne or Serrano if I make this again. Since my kids (2 and 4) weren't especially keen on it, I probably won't.

Delicious! Even my husband said the paneer grew on him after a few bites, since the rest of it was so good. I will admit to eliminating the ketchup, as I can't stand the stuff.
