Corn n Cottage Cheese Delight with Triangle Parathas

Long forgotten cob of corn in the fridge beckoned me ! Along with Cottage cheese aka Paneer i cooked up a delicious gravy that just vanished from my kids plate before i could say gooooo!!!!

The USP of this dish is that i ditched the usual way of making it with garam masala powder and ginger-garlic paste!!!!

  • bowl of corn, 
  • Cottage cheese - 200gm 
  • Onions 2 to 3 
  • coconut (few pieces), 
  • cashenuts  fistful
  •  Pepper 2 tsps 
  • Salt - to taste 
  • Turmeric Powder - a pinch
  • Cumin seeds - 1tsp
  • Fennel Seeds - 1 tsp
Pressure Cook the corn and cut the cottage cheese in to small pieces

Grind the onions to a paste and keep aside. Dry roast the pepper for a few minutes and powder it.
Grind the coconuts and cashew together to make a fine paste

In a Wok put some butter and add cumin and fennel seeds and stir them till they turn a golden brown. Now add the onion paste and saute it well. Let it simmer for a while, till the raw smell of the onions disappear.Now add the powdered pepper and stir.

Now add a pinch of turmeric powder, salt and the coconut-cashew paste. Stir well and add the cooked corn and paneer. Now pour some water and let it cook for some more time till the gravy thickens.

Now for the piece de resistance

Triangle Paratas :-

To make the dough use wheat flour and knead it well with required water and some oil.
Now make a small ball of the dough and spread it on the rolling pin like this.
Fold the spread in to half. Repeat once again to make a small triangle.

Now spread this triangle as shown and put it on a pan

Add ghee and cook it crisp n hot !!!
Dig in to this delightful combo. You can make this less sinful by not adding the coconut-cashew paste !!!


Sending this dish to Akila's Event DNSW:C
