  1. In a large saucepan, bring the milk to a boil. Stir in the lemon juice. Continue cooking 15 minutes, stirring constantly, until curds have formed. Using a cheese cloth, separate the cheese from remaining liquid, and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stirring constantly, cook the cumin seeds and onion in the skillet until golden brown. Mix in the bell pepper, corn, and peas. Season with garam masala, turmeric, and chili powder. Continue to cook and stir 10 minutes, until vegetables are tender.
  3. Mix the cheese into the skillet. Reduce heat to low, cover, and continue cooking 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro to serve.

WOW was this good - just a terrific recipe. Beware though that separating curds from the liquid is not easy and if you haven't done it before you should allow a little more time for that part.

I loved the curry in this recipe, but used the paneer recipe submitted by amibould instead. Using buttermilk instead of lemon juice is amazing!!! Use that paneer with this sauce, and you will ...

I've made the paneer twice, with friends, and it's so much fun. Seeing milk turn into cheese is very, very exciting. We've used raw milk from the farmers' market, and it's been the most gorgeous...

This is a great dish once you get the hang of it. I had a hard time with the cheese (paneer)the first time I made it. You need to keep adding lemon juice until you can see huge curds seperate f...
