A good choice for vegetarians and definitely for paneer lovers – this cottage cheese preparation studded with green peas is a winner. It is easy to make and tastes great with garmagaramphulkas or rotis!
One of the most popular Punjabi dishes, matar paneer is a really simple dish to prepare and is packed with rich flavours. Cottage cheese and fresh green peas cooked in ghee with onions and spices into a creamy gravy, is one of my favourite accompaniment with rotis or simple chapattis. What I love about matar paneer is that it is so fuss free to cook. Sometimes I add chunks of the all-time favourite, aloo (potato) in it! A perfect choice for vegetarians and definitely a good one for paneer lovers – this cottage cheese preparation studded with green peas is a winner.
