Matar Paneer

For Day 2, week 4 of BM #45, here is another popular North Indian side dish.

This is favored by most of the kids in our friends circle and so is a standard party dish! 

Ingredients - 

Onion, chopped 1/2 cup
Tomato, chopped 1 1/2 cups
Tomato Paste 1 tsp
Ginger-Garlic-Green Chilli Paste
Cashews 4-5 (Optional)
Garam Masala, Dhania Powder, Red Chilli Powder, Salt and Turmeric as needed
Paneer, cubed, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes 1 1/2 cups
Peas, fresh or frozen 1 cup
Kasuri Methi 1 tsp
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp)


Matar Paneer

Method Of Preparation -


In a heated pan, add oil and cumin seeds. After they crackle, saute the onions until they turn slightly brown.

Add in the ginger-garlic-green chilli paste, turmeric powder, tomatoes and tomato paste. Also pour in 4-5 tablespoons of water. Let the mixture simmer until the oil floats on top.

Remove from fire and let it cool. Upon cooling blend into a smooth paste along with cashews and transfer to the pan. Let it boil.

After the onion-tomato mixture comes to a boil, add the peas, kasuri methi, garam masala, dhania powder, red chilli powder and salt.

Mix well and gently slide the paneer cubes into the simmering gravy. Remove from fire after about 3-4 minutes.

Garnish with Cilantro (coriander leaves) and serve warm with Roti/Kulcha/Naan.


Preparation Time 40 min
Serves 4-5
