When I made this with homemade paneer, the cheese completely disintegrated. Any tips on making paneer that will hold up to the gentle stir frying action of a dish like this? I used the paneer recipe from ShowMeTheCurry.
BTW – it was still DELICIOUS 🙂
The trick to prevent paneer from crumbling is kneading it like dough before setting it. Also, 1 tbsp of all purpose flour (added while kneading) will help the paneer gel together and not crumble as much.
WHAT IS THE PAPRIKA?
Paprika is dried red bell pepper (capsicum) powder. It is used more for color as it has no spiciness.
I made this dish for my friend’s baby shower dinner party few weeks back and guess what? It was a superhit…. Thanks guys!!
Thanks for the feedback Padma!
