Matar Paneer (Internet)
- 4 tbsp Vegetable oil plus for frying paneer
- 1 cup Onion Chopped
- 1 cup Tomato Chopped
- 1 inch Ginger Chopped
- 5-6 cloves Garlic
- 2 tsp Green chilli Chopped
- 2 tsp Coriander powder
- 1 tsp Turmeric powder
- 2 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder
- 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
- 1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
- 400 g Paneer
- 1 cup Peas Boiled till soft
- Salt to taste
- Fresh coriander for garnishing

(1) Add onion, tomato, ginger, garlic and green chile in a blender and blend to make a coarse paste. Keep aside.
(2) Cut the paneer into small pieces and shallow fry till golden brown.
(3) Heat oil in a pan. Once the oil is hot, add the onion and tomato paste and fry till the masala turns golden brown. Do this on medium heat.
Frying the masala may take up to 15 - 20 minutes. Keep adding little water if the masala turns out dry. Do not compromise on this step otherwise the gravy will taste of raw onion and garlic.
(4) Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, kashmiri red chili powder and garam masala powder and fry for another 2-3 minutes. Add some water if required.
(5) Now add the paneer and peas in the masala along with a cup of water and salt.
(6) Bring the curry to a boil. Cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes.
(7) Garnish with fresh coriander and serve hot with pariah or Naan or rice.
