This is a very ordinary and common dish which is frequently made in my kitchen. However, a few of my friends wanted me to share this recipe on this page. Hence sharing..........

We need....

  1. Fresh peas shelled( avoid the frozen one)...1 cup
  2. Paneer cubes ....2 cups
  3. Onions (finely chopped)....2
  4. Ginger Garlic paste..1 tbsp
  5. Tomatoes (chopped)..1 cup
  6. coriander/dhaniya patha..a few sprigs chopped

  8. Coriander powder....1 level tsp
  9. Turmeric powder...half tsp
  10. Garam masala...half tsp.
  11. Refined oil......2 tbsp
  12. Salt to taste.


  1. In a thick bottomed kadai, heat oil. Bring the flame to medium, sauté the paneer, without changing its colour and remove it to a bowl.
  2. In the same oil sauté the onions and ginger garlic paste with a pinch of salt till golden brown.
  3. Add the spice powders except garam masala. At this point, take care either to switch off the stove, or wet the spice powders, so that they don't burn
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir well to a thick gravy .
  5. Add the peas and salt , cover the kadai and bring the flame to low and let it cook till the peas turn tender.
  6. Now you can add the paneer, stir lightly so that the masala gets coated well, close the kadai again and cook for  5 minutes. Sprinkle the garam masala and chopped dhaniya patha. Remove from fire and keep the lid on for a minute or two. When u open an appetizing aroma would reach u.....You can have this with rotis to enjoy the real taste.
