Paneer Peas Curry ( Dry )

For the final day of week 1, under Mother's Day special theme am here with a simple and my mom's favorite dish with Paneer and Peas. My mom used to prepare this special dish on weekends specially when she used to prepare Poori. Freshly ground garam masala used to give this dish a special taste and flavor. This has also been a favorite dish for  us-3 sisters as mom used to make it when ever we used to go for a school field trip. This dish has been my friends favorite too....this Mother's Day am preparing this dish for my kids,  I hope they like it ....Here goes the recipe.......


Paneer 1/2 pound
Green peas 1 cup
Onion 1
Tomato 1
Curry leaves 4
Green chillies 3
Haldi 1/2sp
Chilli powder 1/2 sp
Garam masala 1sp ( Freshly roasted and powdered Cinnamon, Cardamom and Cloves)
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 sp
Salt to taste
Oil 1/4 cup
Cilantro 1/2 cup


Heat pan and add oil.
Cut paneer into small cubes and fry them in the oil.
Remove and place them on tissue paper so that excess oil is drained.
In the same oil add curry leaves and very finely chopped onions and green chilies.
Fry for some time and add ginger garlic paste.
Cook till raw smell disappears.
Now add tomato, haldi, chilli powder, salt and garam masala.
Mix well and cook till tomatoes are soften.
Now add peas and little water to cook well.
When the peas are  almost cooked add paneer and cook for 5 more minutes
Garnish with cilantro and serve hot with roti, naan etc....
