“This is my friend's mom recipe that she told me over the phone, and it turned out great when I tried it. Paneer is Indian cheese (for homemade paneer, refer Homemade Paneer / Panir (Indian Curd Cheese)). You can substitute with firm tofu or feta cheese, but this really tastes best with paneer. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over a medium-high flame and saute garlic paste in it for 30 seconds, without allowing it to brown.
  2. Add the chopped onions and bell peppers and saute for 5-10 minutes or until the onions become translucent.
  3. Now turn the flame to high and add the paneer (or feta cheese), tomatoes, chili powder, garam masala, and salt, and saute with constant stirring for about 10 minutes or until all the juices have come out of the tomatoes and absorbed by the veggies and the paneer.
  4. Remove from flame and serve hot with rotis or bread!
