The all-time favourite combination of Broccoli and Paneer comes together in a totally different format here, in a base of Chinese White Sauce, perked up with coriander and lemon rind.

Chinese White Sauce, unlike the continental version, is not bland but super-flavourful. It is made of vegetable stock, flavoured with onion, garlic and ginger.

When this is further enhanced with peppy coriander and tangy lemon rind, you just cannot imagine the bursts of flavour that you are in for.

When making the Broccoli and Paneer in Lemon Coriander Sauce, make sure you add the lemon rind after switching off the flame, to avoid it turning sour.

Serve along with with Chinese Noodles and Rice Dishes .

Broccoli and paneer cooked in Chinese white sauce make a nice healthy vegetable. There is a fair amount of gravy and i would tend to make it a bit more spicier.

A really authentic recipe and pretty easy to make. The flavours are subtle and adding the zest gave a great aroma as well as flavour. I have also made this using cauliflower and tofu and it turned out great as well. Its important to use chopped garlic instead of readymade garlic paste and using kaffir lime (patali nimbu) gives even better flavour.
