reshmi paneer recipereshmi paneer recipe | paneer reshmi recipe | reshmi paneer masala with step by step photo and video recipe. north indian or punjabi cuisine are known for its myriad range of paneer based curries. these mainly differ with the way paneer is used in a range of sauces with different spices and vegetable bases. one such simple and easy paneer curry recipe is reshmi paneer recipe known for its unique paneer slices with capsicums, onion and tomatoes.

well many would argue that there would not be any significant difference between the paneer reshmi recipe and any other paneer gravy-like kadai paneer or paneer masala. i would say there are significant differences with the way this curry is made compared to others. the main visible difference is the way paneer is diced or sliced. paneer is sliced lengthwise. even the capsicum and onions are sliced lengthwise which just gels with the paneer. in addition to it, the colour of the gravy is more bright in colour compared to kadai paneer as it full of spices. this makes it visibly attractive. moreover, the spices used in this recipe are minimal and you would realize that when you start reading the recipe card anyway.

furthermore, before wrapping up the recipe post, i would like to highlight some tips, suggestions and variations to paneer reshmi recipe. firstly, this recipe is typically made as gravy based curry, but can also be made as a dry variant. the dry variant looks like paneer jalfrezi, but i would suggest to make it as gravy. secondly, the paneer has to be super moist to be used in this recipe. i have used homemade paneer, but you can also use store-bought ones, but before buying check the expiry date for its freshness. lastly, you can experiment the recipe by adding more vegetables in addition to onion and capsicum. you can add vegetables like corn, peas, carrots and even beans to make it a vegetable-based reshmi curry.

finally, i request you to check my other top paneer recipes collection with this post of reshmi paneer recipe. it mainly includes my other paneer variants like aloo paneer tikki, kaju paneer masala, chilli paneer, pudina paneer tikka, shahi paneer, paneer hyderabadi, paneer ghee roast, paneer fried rice, paneer biryani, paneer butter masala. further to these i would also like to mention my other recipes categories like,
