This is an incredibly simple and tasty dry subji I learnt from an old school friend.
2 bell peppers - (I used 1 green & 1 yellow here) - cut into long thin pieces
400 gms paneer - cut into long thin slices
2 tomatoes chopped
1 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp cumin pwd
1 tsp coriander pwd
1 tsp kasuri methi
1/2 tsp red chilli pwd or to taste
Salt to taste
Ghee or oil
Cilantro to garnish
Heat the oil. Fry the ginger and garlic pastes for a min. Add the bell peppers and dry spices. Cover and cook on medium for 5 mins. Add the tomatoes. Cook till the fat separates. Add kasuri methi & salt. Cook a few more mins. Add the paneer. If desired, the paneer can be fried separately before adding - I usually shallow fry it in a non-stick pan with a few drops of oil. After adding the paneer to the subji, cover and cook for 2-3 mins. Garnish w/cilantro.
