This creamy Paneer Matar curry can be served with Chapathi/ Rice / any kind of bread..Last day i served it with Kerala APPAM..So a North Indian curry with the South Indian Appam:)
So here is the recipe:
- Paneer-250 grams
- Peas-1/4 cup ( frozen or fresh ) I used frozen ones
- Onion-1 big ( finely chopped)

- Kashmiri chilly powder-1/2 spoon
- Turmeric powder-1/4 spoon
- Garam masala powder-1/2 teaspoon
- Cooking cream -4 spoon
- Garlic -5 cloves ( crushed)
- Salt-as per needed
How to make:
1)first heat the wok, add butter and splutter the cumin seeds.. Then add the onion and sauté well..let it cook for some time..
2)now add salt , garlic ,green chilies.. Stir well..once the onion becomes transparent and soft, add tomatoes.. With the spatula crush the tomatoes well..this will make it to a paste like consistency.
3)now add all the spice powders.. Mix it well with the tomato-onion paste.. If needed add more salt and cook well.. Later add some water and then add peas.. Stir gently..and cook this for 2-3 minutes with lid closed..
4)now add the paneer cubes and stir gently so that all the flavor gets mixed up..cook this for another 4 minutes with the lid closed on medium flame..
5)now open the lid and pour some more water.. Then cook well till the water content reduces .. Now add the key ingredient-fresh cooking cream.. Mix well and reduce the flame.. Add more cream if you need more curry..cook this for 3 minutes..
6)sprinkle a handful of chopped cilantro leaves and off the flame!!
So our Restaurant style Paneer Matar curry is done!! I did it in less than 20 minutes..
I always try to keep some frozen veggies stuff and fresh cooking cream in the refrigerator, so that I can cook something quickly at times..I’m taking this to Angie’s Fiesta Friday Party co-hosted by
