  • 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 - 1 pinch
  • Salt : 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder : 1/2 tsp
  • oil 1 tsp
  • Water as required : 3-4 cups approx.


  • Peel and boil the drumstick pieces of two inches in 2 cups of water. After boiling keep aside. Do not throw the water.
  • Prepare a batter of gramflour and curd of flowing consistency without any lumps.Also add water 1 cup. Keep aside.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Now add paneer cubes, half ginger juliennes , a little more water and cook for few minutes for flavours to mingle.
  • 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.

  • I have used subtle flavours but you can use the tempering of mustard seeds, curry leaves, chilli powder, or dry red chillies.
