Pineapple and Paneer :-) what an experiment

Monday was cleanup day- clean everything that's getting stale in the fridge/ freezer. So this is what I had at hand for lunch-
1 cup pineapple (left over from my upside down cake)
100 gms paneer / cottage cheese

Niket was working from home (He always complains that whenever he is working FROM home, he actually works AT home LOL) and he loves my experiments with food. The veggie was a delight with rotis. Here is the recipe formula-


1 cup pineapple
100 gms paneer / cottage cheese
1/2 a cup shredded carrots
1 large boiled and cubed potato
1 onion, 1 tomato chopped
oil for cooking
1 tsp jeera / cumin for tempering
1 tsp turmeric , coriander and garam masala / all spice each
Salt to taste
3/4 cup water

Heat oil, add jeera. Add onions and fry till translucent. Add tomatoes and cook till the raw smell is gone. Add cubed paneer and potato, fry for a couple of mins. Now add carrots and pineapple (you can even use the core here, it gets cooked well). Fry a bit. Add the spices, salt and fry again. Add water and cook covered for a couple of mins / till done.

(The pic is weird since you really can't separate the pineapples from the potatoes LOL)
