Mutter Paneer (Paneer & Peas cooked in Tangy Tomato Sauce)


by: Aarthi

I made this one in pressure cooker since I used fresh peas...If you are using frozen u can just cook it on the kadai...Since I cooked both paneer and peas in pressure cooker,the paneer got nice flavour inside too,because you know that paneer is pretty bland right.. This can be served with roti or rice...I think I served that with my Aromatic Rice Pilaf.. So go ahead and try it...
