Today when I was planning to cook a dish using green peas and cottage cheese for lunch, I had only one thought in my mind and that was making Mutter Paneer. But then another thought crossed my mind that was making Mutter Paneer is so mundane! With this thought I pondered a bit more and then got an idea to make Green peas with crumbled cottage cheese or Paneer. It is a slight variation of Mutter Paneer and you don’t need many ingredients to prepare the same.
See the recipe below:
- Green Peas 100 gms
- Paneer 100 gms
- Cumin seeds 1 tea spoon
- Red chili powder 1 tea spoon
- Turmeric powder 1 tea spoon
- Garam Masala 1 tea spoon
- Ginger and Garlic paste 1 table spoon
- Tomato 1
- Coriander powder 1 tea spoon
- Oil 1 table spoon
- Butter 1 table spoon
- Salt to taste
- Sugar to balance the taste
- Lime juice 1 tea spoon
Peel the green peas and keep them aside.
Halve the tomato, remove the seed part and cut into long slices.
Now in a wok heat oil and butter and then add cumin seeds.
After the cumin seeds are spluttered, add the green peas and cover the wok with a lid.
Reduce the flame of the gas and let the peas cook on slow fire.
After 5 minutes, open the lid of the wok and see if the peas are tender.
Now add all the dry spices one by one and also add the ginger and garlic paste.
Add salt and sugar for taste.
Now add chopped tomato and 2 -4 table spoon of water so that all the spices are we coated with peas and tomato.
Now crumble the paneer with your hand and add that into the peas and mix everything together.
After 5 minutes, switch off the gas and add lime juice in the dish and serve hot.
