Matar Paneer


When I was a kid I used to have matar paneer in weddings and all, it was so much in trend back then. But then I never had it for long until I met my husband who loves it till date. So now I have started making it just for him. Lets see the recipe–



Paneer (cottage cheese cubes) – 1 – 1 1/2 cup

Onion – 2 small to medium (made into paste)

Ginger-garlic-green chilli paste – 1-2 tsp

Tomato – 1 big (paste)

Meat Curry Masala – 1 tbsp

Salt – to taste

Turmeric – 1/4 tsp

Frozen Peas – 1 tbps

Bay Leaf – 1 pc

Cumin Seeds (Jeera) – 1 pinch

Oil – 1 tbsp

Coriander Leaves – for garnishing



  • Here you can fry paneer cubes, but I prefer just a quick tawa roast with little oil.


  • Keep the fried paneer aside.
  • Now in a kadhai, heat oil and then put in bay leaf and cumin seeds.
  • Then pour in ginger-garlic-green chilli paste and cook till light brown.
  • Now add onion paste and cook till brown.
  • Add salt, turmeric and meat curry masala.IMG_5723
