Paneer Matar

Posted by Sneha on March 29, 2007

This is one another of those yummy recipes I learnt from my friend A’s repertoire of North Indian dishes. Extremely easy to make, equally delicious and proudly presentable!



1. Paneer
2. Matar(Green Peas) frozen – 1 cup
3. Chilli Powder – 1 tsp
4. Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp
5. Cream – 2 tbsp
6. Salt to taste
7. Oil – 3 to 4 tbsp

To Grind:

1. Medium sized tomatoes 3-4
2. Medium onion – 1
3. Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
4. Tomato paste – 1 tbsp
5. Green chillies- 2 to 3


1. Cut paneer into bite sized pieces and keep aside.
2. Defrost or thaw the green peas (if using frozen) and keep aside.
3. Wet grind the ingredients mentioned above for grinding, adding very little or no water.
4. Heat oil and let the mix boil for 8-10 mins.
5. Add chilli powder, salt to taste
6. Add 1/2 tsp garam masala, peas, paneer and cream in the end and simmer for 5 mins.
7. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with any Indian bread.

    Lovely dish! this is my favorite to order out…I made this once with evaporated milk instead of heavy cream and it was great. What garam masala do you use in such dishes? do you make your own?

    Its my favorite take out too…until I learnt how to make, that is! I use MDH Garam Masala. Try it and let me know, its delicious.
    Thanks for passing by!
