About this Recipe

Potatoes and paneer usually are main ingredient for many dishes and hence not used together. Hence this recipe is bit exceptional as I have used both, I named it as nazakat which means with lot of care as potatoes in this recipe has to be handled with lot of care.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • 8 medium sized potatoes
  • 100 gm cottage cheese
  • For gravy :2 tbsp dry fenugreek leaves( Kasturi methi)
  • 6 tomatoes
  • 4 garlic pods
  • 1/2 cup water
  • spices for paneer : pinch of red chilli powder, pepper powder, salt and chat masala
  • 1/2 cup oil for deep frying.
How to cook?
  1. Take medium sized potatoes and peel them.
  2. With help of the rear end the  spoon, scoop out the potatoes making a hole, do not throw the scooped out part this can be used in gravy. We would stuff paneer into this hole later on.
