Pudina paneer in white gravy, no tomato gravy for paneer. Quick video, stepwise pictures recipe.

Pudina paneer gravy with dried mint, not the green gravy version😉. I had this once in The Curry Culture restaurant. It was some Mint special in their restaurant going on and we ordered this and paratha. Loved it a lot. Only myself and Vj had it. Aj was as usual enjoying his regular Dal and bhindi masala😏. I immediately noted the recipe idea in my mobile to try list.

This was some one year ago😅. I tried paratha, but this is long time pending, finally did yesterday for lunch. Was thinking if Aj would agree to have it, that’s why have been postponing to try it as I have to make something else for him on top of this. But yesterday, I just went ahead and tried after convincing Aj. He was ready too as he was bored of his routine menu😉.

And he loved it like anything, that he wants me to make more often, and soon again once🥰. Unpredictable kids! Coming to the pudina paneer recipe, this doesn’t have the over powering flavour of mint. Infact, it was too mild. You can grind 6-7 leaves along the pureeing part for fresh mint flavour, if you are looking for it. I just loved my version and it is best way to use up mint. You can just dry it and store, later use in this gravy or make my pudina paratha.

  1. Other ways to dry mint:
    a) Clean as mentioned in step 1. Dry in shade over clean kitchen towel for 2-3 days. Once dried, keep in hot sun to turn it crispy and crush to store it for future use.
    b) Clean as mentioned in step 1. Spread in fridge as single layer in a tray and leave it for a day or two. Sun dry once shrunken.
    c) Clean as mentioned in step 1. Microwave in high for 30 secs, 2-3 times until its dried.
