I do find it interesting that the “national drink” of India – where a large part of the country is quite warm – is hot tea! In Delhi even in the summer months with the terrible hot winds called loo blowing, we would still drink tea. Piping hot Chai (tea) topped off with Malai (clotted cream).


Paneer ki Bhurjee

Fresh paneer cooked with tomatoes and cilantro.
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 Serrano green chilies, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 2 cups paneer*, grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
* You can buy paneer at your local Indian grocer or prepare it at home.

Heat oil in large pan. Add chilies. After 20 seconds stir in cumin and onions.

Cook onions until soft and begin to change color.

Add the turmeric and the red chili powder.

Add tomatoes.

Cook for a few minutes. Don’t mash the tomatoes, just lightly sauté them. Add paneer.
