Green Peas Paneer Masala


Paneer – 100 gm

Boiled peas – 1 cup

Onion – 1

Ginger – 1 small piece

Garlic – 4 cloves

Tomato, chopped – 1

Kashmiri chilli powder – 2 tsp

Coriander powder – 1½ tsp

Turmeric powder – ½ tsp

Garam masala powder – 1 tsp



Curry leaves

Coriander leaves


Shallow fry paneer cubes until golden brown. Place the cubes in warm water. This helps the paneer to stay soft.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add onion and curry leaves. Fry till onion becomes tender. Add garlic and ginger. Saute well. Add tomato. Cook till it becomes mushy. Now add chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, and garam masala powder. Saute 2 minutes on low heat. Now add peas and salt along with 1/2 cup of water. Cook this covered until done. Add paneer and cook for 2 minutes.

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.

Paneer matar masala goes well with chapati and naan.
