Paneer & Peas in a Spiced Tomato Sauce - Matar Paneer

Emily (Cooking for Kishore)

This is a great quick warming vegetarian dish with a deliciously rich and spiced tomato sauce. It can easily be made vegan by replacing the paneer with tofu.

Ingredients

  • 9 oz Paneer, cubed
  • 2 cups Peas
  • 8 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Red Onion, chopped
  • 1 Green Chili, chopped
  • 3 Green Cardamom Pods
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic Ginger Paste
  • 2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 Tbsp South Indian Garam Masala
  • 2 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Water
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a pan to medium, brown paneer on both sides, then take it out and drain it on some paper towels. Save for later.
  2. In the same pan, lower the heat to medium low. Add the Cardamom and cook for 30 seconds. Add the onion and brown lightly, then add the garlic ginger paste, green chili, ground coriander, garam masala, and turmeric.
  3. Next, add the diced tomatoes and half the cilantro, cook for 5 minutes. Add 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Add the previously cooked paneer, and let lower the heat letting it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  4. Add the salt, peas, and remaining cilantro, simmer for another 2-3 minutes. *If the tomato sauce is too acidic, you can add 2 tbsp of plain yogurt to it after you take it off the heat. Make sure to mix it well.*
  5. Garnish with Cilantro and serve with Fresh Roti or Naan.
