Matar Paneer

    This dish is my children's favourite Indian food. It tastes good with rice or chapattis. I always buy paneer packets and keep them handy in my freezer for emergencies!

    Very easy and mouth watering dish  -  08 Oct 2014


    I make this one night with eggplant bhurtha and chicken korma. Paneer is not easy to find here so I substituted firm tofu. I wished it was more savory and richer. If I were to make it again, I would use more yogurt, salt, and real paneer.  -  21 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
