【奶香奶豆腐】Paneer Makhanwala (Indian Cottage Cheese in Buttery Gravy)

家里的牛奶如果有点变味了,千万不要扔了,加点柠檬汁或者白醋,做成奶豆腐(Paneer),可以拿来做这道营养好吃的Paneer Makhanwala喔!

When milk at home gets a little sour, I often turn it into home-made cottage cheese (Paneer) and make this very delicious North Indian dish--Paneer Makhanwala.



4 杯 牛奶
1 大勺 柠檬汁/白醋 
一块 纱布 

1 块 市售 奶豆腐
3-4 只 中型番茄(熟透的最好)
3-4 只 小青椒
2 瓣 蒜瓣
一小段 姜块 (大约半只拇指大)
一小撮 干葫芦巴叶/苦草叶 (Fenugreek/Kasuri Methi)
2 大勺 黄油/butter
1 杯 牛奶 加 1/2 杯 水
1/4 小勺 辣椒粉
1/8 小勺 黄姜粉
1/2 小勺 Garam masala
1 大勺 番茄酱/ketchup
盐 适量


For Paneer:
4 cups whole milk
1 tbsp lime juice/vinegar
1 Cheese cloth


1 piece of Shop bought paneer

For Makhanwala:
2-3 Medium size Roma tomato
3-4 green chilies
2 cloves of garlic
1 small piece of ginger root (The size of 1/2 thumb)
A pinch of Dried Fenugreek leaves/Kasuri Methi
2 tbsp butter
1 cup 2% milk or 1/2 cup whole milk plus 1/2 cup water

1/4 tsp Chilli powder
1/8 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
1 tbsp ketchup
Salt to taste

1. 先把牛奶煮滚,加入柠檬汁或白醋,轻微搅拌,至牛奶凝固。

2. 在一个盆子里放好Cheese Cloth,倒入刚刚煮好凝固的奶酪。

3. 把cheese cloth包起,尽量挤出水份,然后那个重物压压,把多余的水份压出来。

1. Bring milk to boil at medium heat, now stir in lime juice/vinegar, stir it slowly in circular motion till chunks formed.

2.Pour milk/cheese mixture over on a cheese cloth laid on a colander, wrap it up,squeeze out as much water as you can to form a solid cheese ball.

3. You could also press it with something heavy to force out excess water. 
If you press the cheese hard enough, you maybe able to form a solid bar and cut it into cube.

4. 把奶豆腐切块,平底锅里两面稍微煎黄。

5. 把番茄、辣椒、姜蒜搅拌成糊。

6. 锅里下黄油加入干葫芦巴叶,稍微炒炒,然后倒入番茄糊,煮至边上泛油。然后加入辣椒粉,黄姜粉翻炒。

7. 加入牛奶煮滚之后,加入Garam masala, ketchup/番茄酱和盐调味,然后加入奶豆腐,再煮一个5分钟。稍微煮1-2分钟,就可以熄火。

8. 可以和米饭,馕或者面饼一起吃。

4. Cut the paneer into pieces, lightly sear until golden brown.

5. Now blend tomatoes, chili, garlic and ginger into a smooth paste. 

6. Add some butter in a cooking pan with some dried Methi leaves/Kasuri Methi, add the tomato paste and cook until oil separated at the edge, add chilli powder and turmeric powder.

7. Now add milk and bring to boil, season with Garam masala, ketchup and salt. 

8. Add the paneer pieces and cook for 3-4 minutes. Serve with rice, naan or flat bread.
