One of the most popular north Indian dishes, Matar Paneer is a staple in almost every household. A delicious curry dish made with cottage cheese, green peas and tomato puree based sauce, it is simple to make yet packs in a punch with the flavours. Best enjoyed with naan, chapatti or rice, it is the ultimate dish for the vegetarians looking to get their daily dose of protein while tickling their taste buds with something appetising and flavoursome.
Notes: If you are using frozen peas, boil them in water till they become tender. Strain them and then use them for the cooking process. Variations to try: - To make the dish more waist friendly, you can do away with frying the paneer cubes before adding to the curry. You can add raw cubes as well but make sure they are cooked properly before taking the dish off the flame - The consistency of the dish depends upon your liking. If you like your curry to be thick, cook the dish for an extra 5-10 minutes. If a runny curry is what you like, add more water to it at step 8. - You can increase or decrease the quantity of paneer, matar & spices as per your requirement Best paired with: - Matar paneer tastes best with hot phulkas but you can eat it with boiled rice as well. - Add to it a bowl of chilled raita, fresh green salad of cucumber & onion and green chutney will add to the taste and give you a well-balanced meal option.
