Mutter-paneer-masala
         I tried this recipe after I tasted this at my friend Sangeeta’s place, I loved it very much and asked her the recipe for it…I make this when ever I get bored of the paneer butter masala,this is sure a nice variation from the usual cashew gravy! I wanted to blog this for long time and here it is. I love this with roti or even mild spiced pulavs / rice…
The recipe where my friend sangeeta referred was My Dhabha mutter paneer masala.

Mutter paneer masala recipe


Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch / Dinner - side dish
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients

Paneer, cubed(frozen)  1 cup 
Peas, frozen  3/4 cup 
Tomatoes  2 nos. 
Curd  1/4 cup 
Green chillies  3 nos. 
Ginger garlic paste  1 tsp 
Red chilli powder  1/2 tsp 
Dhaniya powder  1 tsp 
Turmeric powder  1/4 tsp 
Garam masala powder  1/2 tsp 
Coriander leaves  For garnishing 
Lemon juice  1 tsp 
Oil / Ghee  2 tblsp 
Salt  As needed 

To Fry and grind to paste

Onion,sliced 2 nos.
Cinnamon 1 inch
Elachi/cardamom 1 no.
cloves 1 no.
Jeera/cumin seeds 1 tsp
Pepper 10 nos
Oil 1 tsp

Method:

  1. Heat a pan with oil and add the cinnamon,elachi,cloves,pepper and lastly jeera,after jeera splutters,add onion and fry till golden brown. Add the chilli,coriander and turmeric powder .
  2. fry
  3. Just give it a fry,take care not to burn it.Let it cool and grind it along with little water to a smooth paste.
  4. fry,grind
  5. Microwave the peas for 2-3 minutes in high in a micorwave safe bowl. Stir in between for even cooking. Set aside.
  6. peas,microwave
  7. Boil water and add the frozen paneer,switch off the flame and keep covered till use. If you want you can shallow fry the paneer cubes until golden brown and again keep it immersed in hot water. Keeping immersed in hot water helps the paneer to stay soft. I usually dont fry the paneer,just add it to the boiling water and then add it to the gravy,which gives you a softer paneer. But this time I tried shallow frying.
  8. fry paneer
  9. Again heat the oil in the pan and add the green chillies and the ginger garlic paste,fry for a minute,then add the ground paste. Fry for a minute or two.
  10. mp5-horz
  11. Add the chopped tomatoes and required salt. Fry till oil oozes out (4-5 minutes) in medium flame.
  12. mp6-horz
  13. Add the cooked peas. Add the well beaten curd and mix well.
  14. add curd
  15. Add the paneer cubes and required water(1/2 cup), and simmer for 5-6 minutes. Add the garam masala powder.
  16. add paneer
  17. Lastly garnish with the coriander leaves and add the lemon juice after you put off the stove. Mix well.

Notes

  • Do not over fry the masala powders which will turn the gravy bitter.
  • adding lemon juice is very important,so donot skip it,otherwise you have to compromise on the taste!
                                     
                                                              Serve with roti or Naan.

  52. Wow,thanks for the quick try and the prompt feedback Indira and Somoo :) Glad you liked this!

  53. Raji I too almost make this way and this is my very fav and sometime i substitute paneer with Gobi or aloo with green peas, which tastes equally good.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi Raji,

    The dish is too awesome.I've a doubt.

    1.In this receipe while using frozen peas is it necessary to stir for few mins in microwave as u told.If it's must means can we do in the normal gas stove (as we use to fry the veggies) for few mins else how long and for wat.

    2.How to preserve remaining unused paneer after opening from the packet and how long wil it stay once the cover is opened.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Raji...tried it and loved this gravy.. Now a days started preparing this gravy often with different combos like aloo gobi, aloo mutter etc... and thanks for the stepwise pics...

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Raji,
    I tried this. The dish was very scrummy and my husband loved it too. The pics are very attractive that makes me to try the dish.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sudha, so sorry for my late reply! Yes you can do in stove top and the paneer life depends on the expiry date in the cover. Till then you can keep the paneer covered properly in the freezer. Do not thaw the paneer(keep out until soft) and again freeze.
    Valar,Shalu Thanks so much for the feedback :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. this recipe of Raks looks really delicious.. n easy to make as explained in a very fine way. step by step. thnks for it.

    one more thing. i wud like to add is that after reading it .. it reely provoked me to make it n i made it as per recipe instructions (measurements n steps) everything went well n smooth only problem was.. it became spicy. even after takin only 2 green chillies. rather than 3 (as mentioned)

    so guys juz see ya taste n make other than seeing recipe instructions(Quantity)
    rest it was perfect n thnxx to Raks :)

    ReplyDelete

  78. Hi Rak,
    Why you make your gravy after sautéing onions? I make gravy from raw onions. Does it make any difference?
    Love your blog and an awesome description of all the recipies.
    Thanks

  79. Yes grinding after frying gives nice flavor I feel also splutters less while sauteing... Its my feel anyways :)

  98. Tried this recipe today. It was tasty and awesome. Everybody at my home liked it. I made panner from scratch and fresh peas, so it gave a added taste to it.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hi, made this today. It came out very well, just like the pic, only more colorful as I used fresh peas and home made paneer. I did not use the lemon juice as the paneer was split using lemon juice, it was already tangy. It's a nice party dish too. I am a novice cook, this means your instructions are easy and absolutely replicable. Thank you and best wishes for 2014.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I made this dish and I skipped lemon juice as the tomatoes and curd gave it a nice tangy flavour.. I would recommend this dish to all. Thanks for the great recipe.
