The best part of urad dal with paneer is that it is made with everyday ingredients, yet turns out to be a gourmet delight!
Soak the urad dal in enough water in a deep bowl for 1 hour and drain well.
Combine the urad dal, ¼ tsp turmeric powder, salt and 1¼ cups of water in a pressure cooker, mix well and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Drain and keep aside.
Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai, add the paneer and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till the paneer is light brown in colour. Remove and keep aside.
In the same kadhai, add the cumin seeds.
When the seeds crackle, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, green chillies, chilli powder, remaining ¼ tsp of turmeric powder, 2 tbsp of water and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Add the cooked urad dal and mix gently and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
Add the sautéed paneer and coriander, mix gently and cook on a medium flame for another 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
