Matar Paneer Gravy in 10 minutes

Hello Friends,

Its been ten days now, my maid Sujata has gone to her village. However much I like to cook, the prep of cutting vegetables and washing after cooking  is not what I like to do. So I am being a real chor in the kitchen these days and taking short cuts.
This morning, I just got up and impromtu decided to cook as early as 9 AM. Rummaged my refrigerator to find I just had a block of paneer and no veggies besides onions and tomatoes. The deep fridge has some frozen peas. So I decided to quickly do a Matar- Paneer.

Matar Paneer

So check out the ingredients and method to follow. Infact you can alter some ingredients according to what you have in your kitchen . Tamarind instead of tomatoes or even some other dry spices you wish to try. Cooking is all about experimenting and creativity. So get your apron on and Cook with Sweetannu

1 tbsp oil
