Mattar Paneer

Mattar paneer is a very frequent recipe which I used to prepare for chappathi. When ever I go out to eat I used to order this for nan. Once I prepared at home in Chennai and I got the hotel taste when I added pav bajji masala. Even for yesterday lunch I prepared and wanted to share with all. I used fresh peas here, only fresh peas can give us the rich taste. We can prepare without adding cream also. But our taste buds will not accept it. Lol!!!so I used low fat cream ..here im sharing  Mattar paneer my favourite recipe…….

Ingredients
Paneer cubes 1 cup
Fresh peas ½ cup
Corn oil 4tbsp (instead of butter and ghee)
Ground Onion  paste 1cup  (grind 2 or 3 onion)
Tomato puree 1tbsp  or 1 no juicy sliced tomato
Chopped ginger 1tsp
Chopped garlic 1 tsp
Spices
Jeera powder  1tsp
Pepper powder 1tsp
Garam masala ½ tsp
Coriander powder 1 ½ tsp
Pav bajji masala powder ½ tsp
Turmeric powder ½ tsp
Salt to taste
Water as required
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Fresh cream  1 ½ tbsp
Method
Heat 2tbsp oil in pan and fry paneer cubes till golden brown and keep aside. In the same pan add the rest of the oil and fry ginger and garlic, when it turns light brown add onion paste. Fry till brown and add tomato puree. Fry for 2 min.

Now add the spices and salt,Fry well till the oil leaves the gravy, add peas. Fry for 1min.Now add paneer and water. Close the lid and cook in sim for some time around 2min. Open the lid and cook till the gravy thickens. Switch off the flame and add the fresh cream mix well.
