Vegeterian Recipe: Mattar paneer
HOW TO PREPARE : - Cut the paneer into little
cubes. Grate the onions. Blend the tomatoes, chillies, turmeric and keep
it aside. Now take a non-stick tava and bring to heat. Then put butter and
let it melt. Place the cubes on the tava and shallow fry till the edges
start turning light brown. Remove from flame and make tiny holes in each
paneer cube. Boil some water and then put the paneer in that to soak. This
will make the paneer really soft. Take a pressure pan and pour the oil.
Let it come to heat and add the cumin seeds. After they turn golden brown
add the grated onions. Sauteacute; till the onions turn golden brown. Then
add the tomato paste and cook until the raw small leaves. The tomatoes will
then begin giving out oil. Add the paneer and mattar. Stir well. Add a little
water and bring to boil. Once its boiling add the salt stir well and close
the pan. Keep it on a low flame for about ten minutes or for two whistles.
If you want it to be dry then after opening the pressure pan, keep it on
the stove and keep stirring till the water reduces and it becomes dry. Garnish
with coriander or grated butter and serve.
