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

Now add  chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, and garam masala. Saute 2 minutes  in a low heat. Now pour green peas and salt along with 1/2 cup of water. Cook this, covered until done.  Add paneer pieces and cook for 2 minutes.

Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves. They are good to go with chapati and naan.
