Indian Cooking Class, Week 6

Week 6 cooking class. Nomnomnom.

In week six we made palak paneer (below left), a mixed vegetable salad (below right), dal makhni (lentils with beans), and rice with mixed vegetables.
I pulled myself out from under my rock and tried paneer (it's cheese, who knew?!) for the first time in my life. Yum! I loved the mixed salad big time, so here's the recipe! So so so easy.

1/2 cup of each chopped: onion, tomato, cucumber, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, radish
2 green chillies chopped
juice of 2 lemons
salt and pepper to taste
handful of fresh coriander

Mix together veggies. Add lemon juice. Add salt and pepper. Eat. Love.

If anyone wants one of the other recipes, just let me know!


  1. I saw a guy on the cooking channel today making paneer. I've never had it.

    Was this the salad you made for M this week?

  2. Paneer is a really soft, mild cheese (from what I could tell). We mixed ours with a spinach dish so all I could taste was that. Our teacher also showed us how to make paneer at home - something along the lines of boiling milk and adding vinegar, and presto!

    And I made a variation of that salad for Mike, yes! Wasn't as good as in class because I only had romaine lettuce. Not the same :(

  3. I can't wait to try some of your Indian cooking.... before you move out of Toronto, I hope!!
