Broccoli and Paneer Curry

Mike Reid

Ingredients:

Recipe brought to you with the help of our friends at Velisha Farms

  • 1 tbsp ghee, for frying
  • 800g broccoli, cut into florets
  • 225g paneer, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4cm ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 500g broad-leaf spinach, tough stalks removed
  • 200g natural yoghurt
  • Salt

Method:

  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed saucepan over a medium heat and pour in a teaspoon of the oil. Add the broccoli and sauté for 15–20 minutes, or until golden. Take your time and don’t stir too much or you will create steam, which will hinder the colouring. Drain on kitchen paper.
  2. Add another teaspoon of oil to the pan and fry the paneer until browned. Drain on kitchen paper.
  3. Pour another teaspoon of oil into the pan and add the onion, ginger and garlic. Reduce the heat to medium-low and fry, stirring from time to time, for 10–15 minutes, or until softened. Add the curry powder and turmeric and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  4. Return the broccoli to the pan and add 200ml/7floz water. Simmer for 2 minutes, or until tender. Add the paneer, then the spinach, and stir just until wilted.
  5. Season with salt and serve with some dollops of yoghurt.

Our friends at Wine Selectors suggest pairing this dish with a Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend.
