Paneer Kali Mirch, as the name suggests, is a Paneer dish that has a predominant flavour of black pepper and is prepared in a creamy onion-cashew nut based gravy. This recipe is a great change from the usual red gravy-based paneer recipes. The pepper flavour gives a unique spicy hint to the dish without being overpowering.
This Paneer Kali Mirch recipe is easy to make and is a high-protein main course dish. I’ve limited the use of cashew nuts and skipped cream here just to keep the overall calories in check. But you can go ahead and do add some more cashews, cream or even yogurt if you wish to make it richer in taste. Also, I feel that blanching onions give more creamy texture to the gravy than fried onions. This recipe is medium-spicy in taste so you can add few more green chillies for a spicier version. This recipe pairs up really well with hot phulkas or even butter naan.
