Paneer Alfredo Pasta

Paneer Alfredo Pasta

The most awaited recipe….hmm yeah its paneer alfredo pasta... This is my version of alfredo pasta :P
We usually have a love towards alfredo sauce. TH and I like to have pasta from domino's. One fine day i thought to try it out at home and the results came out pretty good. Just to make it as an indianized version i have made some changes and added few more ingredients. Here it goes...

Prepartion time: 30 minutes
Cooking time :  10-15 minutes


½ cup Paneer Cubes
2 tsp Corn flour
1tsp Rice flour
1pk Penne pasta
1 Onion
2-3 Green chillies
Pepper Powder (optional)
Alfredo sauce
Olive Oil

How I Made It

Cook pasta with 2-3drops of olive oil and a pinch of salt in hot water. Cook till the pasta becomes soft. Drain the excess water and keep aside.

Mix Corn flour and rice flour with paneer  by sprinkling water onto it. Make sure the flours coats the paneer cubes well.  Leave the mixture for sometime. Place a pan with little of oil and shallow fry the paneer cubes. Keep aside.

In a kadai/pan heat oil and fry onions and greenchillies. Add pepper powder at this time(optional). Once it is done add the cooked pasta and mixwell.

Then add the shallow-fried paneer cubes. Finally add the alfredo sauce. 

 Completely mix the sauce with pasta and serve. 

PS: I even tried the same recipe with mushrooms. Since mushrooms already have watery-content in it there is no need to sprinkle water in-order to mix with the flour.
