Matar Paneer


Matar Paneer is a tasty & very famous dish of North India. Those who don't know what 'Matar' is, it is the Hindi name for 'Green Peas'. This is a creamy dish with 'Green peas' & 'Paneer' (cottage cheese) as the main ingredients.  I've prepared this recipe using store bought Paneer. It can be made at home also. Boil milk, add lime juice  & stir. When the milk curdles, strain through muslin cloth & flatten the paneer. Cut into squares & its ready to be used in curries.This curry goes well with rotis, naan, paratha, poori etc. So, here goes the recipe:

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup Paneer 
  • 1/2 cup Peas 
  • 1/4 cup curd
  • 1/2 cup diced Tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped Onion
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
  • 1tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garam masala 
  • 1 tsp Chilly Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  •  2 tbsp Oil
  •  Salt as required
  •  Coriander leaves
Directions
  1. Stir fry paneer in little oil till you obtain a light brown colour and keep aside.
  2. Saute onion & ginger-garlic paste till golden brown.
  3. Add tomatoes & the masala powders. Saute for some time.
  4. Add peas, curd, some water & salt. Cook till the peas is soft.
  5. Now add paneer, mix carefully & garnish with coriander leaves.
