So we had Roti Saag.

Now onto the main. I needed something with gravy to go with the roti and of course, paneer (i bought 2 whole kg – must use!), and it must not be pork or beef (guests’ dietary restrictions). I didn’t wanna do mutton again so i was left with not much choice save for seafood.

Since i had almost 2kg of prawns in the freezer, i thought, why not prawn something? Again, i referred to cook books for answer. Yep, i still live in that dinosaur age. I still like my books thankyouverymuch. Sure, googling online is much faster, but somehow, i find that searching for recipes by flipping those pages with my finger tips therapeutic, especially when i’m doing it while lying down on my tummy with good music in the background. Aaaaahhhhhhh.. It’s love love love! It’s nothing like touching the screen on the tablet or the phone somehow.

I don’t know about you, but every time, like seriously, EVERY SINGLE TIME my boys see this photo below, they will burst out laughing at this adorable uncle. Teeeeheheheheee!

He was really quite shy this Mr Ergul!

When i saw him in action, i can’t help but to sprint to the study room for my camera. But seeing me approaching with the camera, he quickly put away his rod! HAHAHAAA! After a teeny persuasion from his wifey only did he resumed his activity, but not without that.. *clears throat* handsemmmm shy smile. *GRIN* Man, i am quite bad sometimes. I love teasing shy people. Don’t ask me why but i just do. Kekekekekeee!

(but if you throw outgoing humans to me, then i’ll turn into the shy one. Strange huh?)

So what was Mr Handsome doing? What do you think?

Was he errr, fishing?

Mmmmm.. Nope! (because i live on 23rd floor fyi, but he could do so just 100m away on the platform next to the canal though. :))

So what possibly could he be doing this high up?


Well, he was trying to use his radio, a radio with extra long tentacles aerial – doesn’t this word sound almost alienish already? Honestly, i kinda miss early 1990s.. *slouch, stare, smile* …

Anywaaayyyyyyyyy, back to the prawns..

Paneer Balti with Prawns

serves 4

1 kg king prawns, peeled and deveined
350g paneer
4 tbsp tomato paste
8 tbsp Greek yogurt
3 tsp garam masala
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic paste
3-5 tbsp chili paste
2 tsp salt
2 tsp ground coriander
230g butter
1 tbsp corn oil
7 green chilies, chopped
6 tbsp chopped cilantro
250-300ml cream


1. Blend the tomato paste, yogurt, garam masala, chili powder, garlic, salt, chili paste and ground coriander in a mixing bowl and set aside.
2. Melt the butter with the oil in a skillet. Lower the heat slightly and quickly fry the paneer and prawns for about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towels.
3. Pour the spice mixture into the fat left n the pan and stir fry for about 1 minute.
4. Add the paneer and prawns and cook for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the prawns are heated through.
5. Add the fresh chilies and most of the cilantro, and pour in the cream. Heat through for about 2 minutes, garnish with the remaining coriander and serve.

Note : if you are game, you can always make your own paneer. ;)

Verdict :

This recipe is a keeper. We love it!!!

Nothing beats seeing happy and satisfied guests after all the work put in. So very glad that everyone enjoyed this dish quite a bit, especially with the roti. Needless to say, my basmati rice that day wasn’t at all laku but not like i minded much. Heh.

Kesar Milk Masala, lugged back all the way from India. :)
