i have posted several paneer curries till now and most of them are the premium curries from the restaurants. they either need a fancy pre-made spices or may contain additional ingredients as a taste enhancer. but i wanted to post something which is simple to make like most of our curries with onion and tomato base. to add, i was getting several requests from my reader to post some basic paneer curry anyway. so i decided to post and name it as simple paneer ki sabji or quick paneer curry. in this recipe i have added basic whole spices to get the extra flavour, which can be ignored but i would not recommend it. moreover, you can easily experiment with other choices of vegetables or even combine the vegetables to this recipe to make mix veg recipe.

in addition, some more tips, suggestions and variations to the paneer ki sabji. firstly, i would heavily recommend to use moist and fresh paneer for this recipe. as a matter of fact, you need to use fresh and moist paneer for all the curries. it would help to absorb the curry flavour into it and thus improving the taste. secondly, in this recipe i have not added additional ingredients like cashew paste or full cream/malai. if you have some spare you are more than welcome to add it. lastly, i have added ghee tempering for the desi flavour. using ghee is not mandatory and hence you can use simple cooking oil or butter for the same result.

finally, i would like to add few more paneer recipes variations with this post of quick paneer curry recipe. it mainly includes my other types of paneer dishes like paneer toast, paneer burger, garlic paneer curry, hung curd paratha, roti sandwich, chur chur naan, paneer nawabi curry, malai kofta, reshmi paneer, aloo paneer tikki. further to these i would also like to mention my other recipe categories like,
