Paneer Peas Masala

A lovely coloured tasty curry ideal for chappathi, appam, white rice or any of your choice. It is too versatile and simple to make. That is what me and my family loves most about it.

  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Onion - 2 (medium) sliced
  • Tomato - 1
  • Garlic - 2 small pods
  • Chilli powder - 2 tsp (I used kashmiri chilli powder)
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Jeera powder - a pinch
  • Paneer - 8 cubes
  • Frozen peas - a handful (add salt and cook in pressure cooker until 1 whistle)
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Fresh cream - 2 tsp
  • Coriander leaves -a small bunch
  • Salt to taste

  • In to wide vessel add 1/2 tbsp oil, sliced onion and chopped garlic. Stir fry it until light brown.
  • Puree the lightly browned onion by adding little water in a mixie. You'll get a dull coloured paste
  • Puree the tomato as well and keep aside
  • Heat the pan, add remaining oil.
  • Put the flame on low and add the chilli and turmeric powder
  • Add the onion paste to the above and stir
  • Stir in the tomato puree now.
  • Add jeera powder, salt (remember you've cooked peas with salt) and mix well.
  • Let the above cook on slow flame until all water dries off and you get a thick paste.
  • Add the peas, paneer, milk and let to simmer. You'll have a thick gravy.
  • Now add the chopped coriander and cream. Switch off the flame.
  • Serve hot
