But in this cooking class with Annu and Vishnu, we will make it with peppers, to make it more tasty. Paneer Massala can be served with rice, bread, lentils, etc. In the version we propose, we will serve it with rice.

What does "Masala" mean? We often translate it as “Curry of”, but this is not correct. We use the word 'curry' when it is in a powder state, whereas in India the powder is called 'Massala', and it becomes 'curry' when it is prepared and therefore becomes a sauce, a juice…
The 4 most used spices which are the basis of Indian cuisine:
Cumin seeds: they are put at the beginning of the preparation of each dish, just after the oil. They help digestion.
Coriander: In India, with the heat, people tend to have high blood pressure. This creates the need to refresh the inside of his body to avoid health concerns. Coriander helps maintain body temperature.
Turmeric = “anti everything”: it is used a lot in the Covid period for the immunity it provides. There is a preparation called “Golden Milk” which is drunk in the evening to prepare the body. A pinch of turmeric is put in all medicinal drinks for cough, fever, etc.
Chilli: it is not of Indian origin, but Portuguese. The Portuguese came to India by sea, particularly to look for spices, including Indian pepper (malaba pepper = “heavy”). When they came, they exchanged their chilli for pepper. Pepper is also used in India too, but to a lesser extent than in Europe (in medicine for example). In hot countries, eating chilli cuts thirst and helps keep water in your body. This is why the Indians eat a lot of chilli.
