mutter paneer with onions and roti

Which dish do you make the most in winters? For me it's probably gajar ka halwa and all possible recipes using green peas. So whether it is Recipe for Mutter Paneer or mutter parathe or patties, you cannot get enough of this seasonal veggie. For any recipe, my go-to person is my bestie Keshav. I always ask him for recipes and he ends up giving really delicious, authentic recipes from his mom's kitchen. This is the third recipe I'm trying and it's been a super hit in my household so far. Last time it was Panchratna Dal and Gud ke Chawal recipe, this time it is Mutter Paneer recipe restaurant style (psst! also wait for Methi Mutter Malai recipe coming soon)

250gm paneer, diced
1 1/2 cups, green peas
Tomatoes, diced
Onions, diced
Green chilli
Green cardamoms
Cumin seeds
Bay leaf
Red chilli powder
Coriander powder
Garam masala
Cumin powder


Note: If using store bought paneer, soak in warm water for 20 minutes before you begin the recipe. And if using frozen peas, soak them in warm water for 10 minutes before using in the recipe.
