Mattar Paneer / Paneer-Peas Kurma

I can have any dish with paneer..I love this particularly because it also has peas in it.This accompanies perfectly with naan..Both paneer and peas are rich sources of protein and hence this is a healthy one too.It is prepared with ease consuming less cooking time..Here is the recipe..



Onions - 2
Cooked peas - 1/2 cup
Paneer cubes - 1 cup
Fresh cream/yoghurt - 1 cup
Bay leaves - 1
Cloves - 3
Cardamom - 2
Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
Garlic - 2 cloves
Chilli powder - 11/2 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 tablespoon
Tomato puree - 1/4 cup


Peel and slice the onions into medium sized pieces.
Saute it in a little oil till it turns brown in colour.
When it cools grind it to a smooth paste and mix it along with the cream/yoghurt.
Deep fry the paneer cubes in reduced flame till golden yellow colour.
Then add the paneer cubes to lukewarm water and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add the spices, Chopped garlic and the ground onion paste.
Stir in reduced flame till the oil floats on the top.
Add the coriander powder, chilli powder,salt and the tomato puree.
Cook for a few more minutes,add cooked peas and the fried paneer cubes.
Bring it to a boil and remove from heat.
Serve hot garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
