Mattar Paneer


For this week Blog hop Wednesday , I went  to Ramya’s recipe index, I searched for paneer recipe. I got this awesome recipe “Mattar Paneer “, She has a good and wonderful blog . My version of Mattar paneer was  little bit different from hers. So I tried hers  and it was simply superb for plain parathas which I had for dinner yesterday.
