dahi paneer recipe dahi paneer recipe | dahi ka paneer | dahi wala paneer ki sabji with step by step photo and video recipe. dahi or yoghurt based recipes are not new to indian recipes and have been adopted to myriad recipes. specifically, it has been an integral part of desserts and sweets but can also be used for curries and sabji recipes too with a hint of spices and sourness. one such popular way of and simple way of making yoghurt curry is dahi paneer recipe or also known as paneer curd curry known for its creaminess and sour taste.

i have always been a huge fan of yoghurt and its related recipes. be it a dessert, dip, chatni or even curry and sabji, i always loved it. but there is something special about dahi paneer recipe. you may have tasted or tried dahi aloo or dahi bhindi but the addition of paneer makes it more special or premium. basically adding the paneer cubes makes it more creamy and rich. in other words, you may use the same base to add different types of vegetables to make different types of curries. well, you may try all the other variants of this recipe, but trust me you would never ignore the paneer based one. you may even experiment further by adding a choice of veggies with paneer. this would certainly make it more exciting, but before experimenting i would recommend trying the classic one first and serve it to your friends and family.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the dahi paneer recipe. firstly, yoghurt or curd is the hero ingredient for this recipe and hence extra care has to be taken while using it. basically, you need to whisk it thoroughly before it is mixed or used in this curry. it would help to make it more creamy and also not curdle while heating. secondly, the paneer has to be moist, soft and fresh so that it absorbs the flavour easily. you may use homemade paneer for best results. lastly, the addition of besan is to get the thick consistency and also for the creaminess. yet, you may ignore adding it and just use the yoghurt base for a slightly thin gravy base.
