Paneer with Coconut & Sesame

It was one of those days last week, when the empty fridge forced me to innovate with whatever little was there in the kitchen. I wanted to make some paneer curry, but to my utter dismay there were neither onion, tomatoes, nor ginger nor garlic at home-the basic ingredients that go with paneer. I finally managed to salvage half a coconut, some sesame seeds, some garlic pods and 1 green chili. I’ve never heard of, read about or eaten paneer with coconut. But to my mind and to my hungry stomach there seemed no option. I whipped up something completely new. And just as I was cooking I realized that it’s an all in all a white recipe- the ingredients right from paneer to coconut, the sesame, garlic and salt were white (with the exception of the solitary green chili of course). It turned out so well that I gave myself a pat on my back. But I still wonder as to why coconut is not a very favored combination with paneer. Well, now it’s going to be in my recipes.
