Mattar Paneer
50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
18 ingredients
6 servings
This was one of the first dishes I cooked for my husband when I was newly married, and it's the recipe I get most requested to make. I have managed to make it less fattening so we can eat it more often by successfully substituting the cream with fatfree half&half or even fatfree yoghurt sometimes (of course it won't taste quite as good as it does with heavy cream). I always use my own homemade paneer in this, and I also roast and grind my own cumin and coriander to bring out the best flavors, but you don't have to do that.
