Hello Everyone,
Prepared this delicious, gluten-free a
nd protein-packed Shahi Matar Paneer Masala, and within 15 minutes only by using basic gravy masala. However, paneer can pack a very healthy punch. It is very good source of protein, especially for vegetarians, who do not get their protein from meat products. When you want a quick and easy way to cook paneer, it’s always matar paneer. I’ve tried this with potatoes and mushrooms and also with other veggies too. Everyone has their way of making matar paneer and here I am sharing with you all my way to prepare this matar paneer masala, So I just used my gravy masala
(basic gravy masala that I have posted before) and tossed green peas and paneer into it, and within 15 minutes it's ready to eat. Let's give it a try!

Preparation and Cooking Time : 15 Minutes.

  6. Coriander leaves ¼ cup
  7. Cumin seeds 1 tsp
  8. Cloves 3

Recipe :
  1. Turn on a flame and place a kadhai, in a kadhai add butter, once butter get hot add cumin seeds, cloves, cinnamon and bay leaf.
  2. Now into the kadhai add
    basic gravy masala (blended onion - tomato paste and red chilli powder) and additionally add some water and paneer masala (I have added coriander powder, cumin powder, salt, turmeric powder and garam masala in basic gravy masala) and cover and cook for 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Furthermore, add peas (you can microwave it for 2 minutes) and paneer cubes.
  4. Mix all well and cook for 5 minutes, now, add milk cream and coriander leaves.

    As staple in the diet as dahl, and I make it regularly! I take sattvika, therefore no onion or garlic; like salt, once one has removed these from one's cooking, it is realised how overwhelming they are to flavours. ... but golly, I need to make some of this today! YAM xx

    Good to know that you take Sattvik food, as Sattvik foods are important to maintain the balance of a healthy mind and body and it also gives necessary energy to the body without taxing it.
