Matar Paneer
 Matar paneer is a very famous paneer dish.I love this version of paneer because it consumes less oil and it is very healthy as matarand tomatoes used in this dish are very good for health.I have adapted this version from youtube khana khazana show.It is loved by all of my family members.So I am sharing the recipe here.

  1. Paneer - 200 gms
  2. Tomatoes - 2 chopped
  3. Onion - 1 finely chopped
  4. Ginger paste - 1 tsp
  5. Garlic paste - 1 tsp
  6. Green Peas - 1 cup
  7. Fresh cream - 1/2 cup
  8. cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  9. turmeric powder - 1 tsp
  10. chilly powder - 1 tsp
  11. coriander powder - 2 tsp
  12. Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
  13. coriander leave paste - 2 tbsp
  14. Oil - 2 tbsp
  15. salt and sugar to taste
  16. few coriander leaves for garnishing

Cut the paneer into cubes and soak them in hot salt water for 20 mins.
In the meantime prepare the gravy.
Heat oil in a kadai. Add cumin seeds and wait till they splutter and become brown.
Add the chopped onions and stir fry till onions become brownish.
Add the ginger and garlic paste and fry for one more min.
Add the tomatoes and fry them till the tomatoes become mushy.It may take 6-8 mins.
Add turmeric powder,chilly powder and coriander powder.Mix them well and fry for 2 mins.
Add the peas.I have used frozen peas which takes less time to cook.In case you are using fresh green peas then either use boiled one or cook for some more time till they get boiled.
Add 2 cups of water and salt.Let it boil.
