About this Recipe

Drumstick Paneer is a healthy paneer curry in which drumstick flavour has been given.

Ingredients & Quantity
  • Paneer cubes 1 cup
  • Drumstick 1
  • Beaten curd 3/4 cup
  • Gramflour 1/2 cup
  • Ginger juliennes 1 tbsp
  • Finely chopped corriander : 1 tsp
  • Ghee: 1 tbsp
  • Asafoetida : a pinch
  • Salt : 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder : 1/2 tsp
  • oil 1 tsp
  • Water as required : 3-4 cups approx.
How to cook?
  1. Peel and boil the drumstick pieces of two inches in 2 cups of water. After boiling keep aside. Do not throw the water.
  2. Prepare a batter of gramflour and curd of flowing consistency without any lumps.Also add water 1 cup. Keep aside.
  3. In a heavy bottomed vessel heat ghee, asafoetida, add the gramflour batter and keep stirring so that it does not stick to the bottom. Add salt and turmeric powder and mix well.
  4. Add the water of drumstick and drumstick pieces which we had boiled and cook for a while till its colour changes and consistency is thickened. This process takes around fifteen minutes and keep stirring in between.
  5. Now add paneer cubes, half ginger juliennes , a little more water and cook for few minutes for flavours to mingle.
  6. Your Drumstick Paneer is ready to be served.Transfer to the serving dish and garnish with chopped corriander and rest ginger juliennes fried in oil.
  7. Enjoy sizzling hot with roti , bread or rice as per choice.
  • I have used subtle flavours but you can use the tempering of mustard seeds, curry leaves, chilli powder, or dry red chillies.
