I have seen Mutter Paneer recipes in 2-3 TV Shows. This is combined version of them and somehow I am very much comfortable with this gravy. This can be made faster, yet very tasty.
Peas ¾ cup (200ml cup)
Paneer 6 cubes
Tomatoes (Medium) 3
Onion (Medium) 1
Chilli Powder ½ tsp
Coriander Powder ¾ tsp
Garam Masala 1/8 tsp
Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
Kasoori Methi ½ tsp
Cumin 1/8 tsp
Milk ¼ cup
Water ½ cup
Chop Onion into very fine pieces. Cut and grind Tomatoes to a fine paste. Soak Paneer in Milk for 10-15 minutes.
Heat Butter and Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Cloves and Cumin. When Cumin seeds crackle, add chopped Onions and fry till slightly brown.
Now add the Tomato Paste and saute till the oil separates. Now add all the Powders and Kasoori Methi. Saute for a while and then add Peas, Water and Salt. Continue to boil.
When the gravy is almost done, pour the paneer cubes along with milk and boil till done.
Serve with Chapati or any Indian Bread.
Some more Peas or Paneer can be added as per your taste.
Paneer can also be shallow fried before adding.
Need not soak Paneer in Milk if it is home made. But if it is more than 3-4 days old, it becomes hard and so can be soaked in Milk to turn it soft.
Adding Cream and Milk enhances the taste of the gravy.
Paneer and Peas are good sources of Protein. This goes to Sobha Shyam’s Cook IT Healthy -- PROTEINcious Event and Bookmarked Recipes Event of Priya & Aipi.
