How to make Matar Paneer | Peas and Cottage Cheese in Tomato Gravy | Easy & Quick Mutter Paneer Recipe | No Onion no Garlic Matar Paneer Recipe 


Today's recipe is one of the most preferred paneer recipes in our house. This recipe needs no introduction, as this is one of the most irresistible, fantastic, scrumptious and very easy to cook vegetarian recipe which is made with Paneer and Green Peas and cooked in tomato based gravy and flavored with Indian spices and garnished with fresh coriander leaves.
It goes very well with chapatti, roti, parathas, jeera rice or steamed rice or pulao. 



Matar or Mutter is a Hindi word which means Fresh green peas and paneer is Indian Cottage Cheese which is made by curdling milk with lemon juice, vinegar or with curd whey.

I always prefer home made paneer in my recipes. To know how to make home made paneer refer this blog post : Home made Paneer Recipe
