Mutter paneer masala, my most fav. north indian dish.I served this with Avacado parathas.I made Mutter gobi also, the same way.


Paneer - 1/2 lb
Mutter - 1 1/2 cups
Onion - 2 (sliced)
Ginger garlic paste - 1tbsp

Tomato - 1
Half n' half - 1/4cup
Kaskas- 1/2tsp
Water - 1/4 cup
Kasoori methi - 1tsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Oil -2tbsp


In a pan, heat oil and fry sliced onions till its color changes.Add gg paste and fry for 3 more mins.Put this into a blender along with red chilli powder,dania powder,turmeric powder,tomato,kaskas and grind well.In a pan add 1tsp of oil and fry jeera.Add the grounded paste into this and fry till oil separates.Add frozen peas and water into this and lt it boil.Once the peas are almost cooked,reduce the heat and add half n' half into this.Add paneer pieces into this and cover and cook for about 5 min.s.Now open and add kasoori methi and cook for another 2 -3 min.s.Serve hot with roti/rice.

Hi Maheswari,

Great recipe ...and i liked the innovative approach to parantha..Avocado paratha.. I also thought since Avocado has fat and has a texture somewhat like Ghee , it might give a good taste to paranta... but was hesitant to try.. Btw how does avocado paratha tastes like

I too makes mutter paneer almost the same way except for khus khus , I add cashews. Urs has turned out very well with lovely colour.Avocado parathas are new to me.

KF said...

Hahaha...I had soaked mutter and planned to make asha'a greenpeas curry,that i tried last week and all enjoyed.So now I changed my mind I will do this..Avacado Partha is really new to me..

I have doubt, are we not supposed to add salt to this curry

Let's say one wanted to make this dish extremely mild...
My fickle italian family doesn't like spicy food in the least bit but I would *love* for them to enjoy this dish the way I do!
What minor things would you do to tweak the recipe to take away the spice? Thank you!

Unknown said...

Thanks for visiting.Since the recipe uses Half n' half it is somewhat mild.If you want reduce some more spicyness, then reduce red chilli powder to 1 tsp and Dania powder to 1/2tsp.Hope your family enjoys the dish as much as we did!
