Mutter Paneer

Paneer is mostly everyone's favorite and so is mine. So this is another paneer combo this time with Mutter or peas. This rich creamy gravy has a tomato base.

here is what we need -

  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • paneer cubes
  • 2 big tomatoes
  • handful of cashewnuts
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream or boil 1 cup milk and reduce it to half
  • 1/2 tbs butter chicken masala
  • 1 sp garam masala powder
  • 1 tbs tomato paste ( I use store bought)
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs red chili powder
  • salt per taste
  • 1/2 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs cumin+coriander powder

Blanch tomatoes, once cold peel and puree them to a smooth paste. While blending add cashews.

Microwave green peas for 3-4 minutes. If you are using store bought paneer you will have to thaw it by resting it outside or may be in a pot with hot water for 10-15 minutes.

In a pan take oil, add red chili powder and puree. Add rest of the dry masala powder. Add salt

Add mutter. Add paneer. Add cream or thickened milk.

Let it simmer for 3-4 minutes on Medium heat.

Finally switch off the stove and add honey. Serve it with roti, paratha or jeera rice .. Irresistible !!
