Mutter Paneer

This mutter paneer has no onion or garlic in it and it is quick and easy to make but tastes great. When I made this I thought of a loving friend who can be difficult to please when it comes to food and eats no onion or garlic and is a great cook herself. I have learnt a lot of important cooking tips and recipes from her.


Frozen peas 2 cups
Cubed paneer 3/4 cup
Cherry tomatoes halved 1/2 cup
Cumin, Mustard seeds, fennel seeds
Chopped green chillies
Turmeric powder, chilli powder, cumin-coriander powder
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Heat oil, add cumin, mustard and fennel seeds. Add the green chillies and the turmeric powder and then the peas and paneer, cumin-coriander powder and chilli powder in order. Finally toss in the tomatoes.  Cook on high heat for a little while. Add salt to taste. You can sprinkle some lemon juice and chaat masala for taste in the end. I paired this dry vegetable with a potato/tomato vegetable (Raswale aloo) and paratha.
