This dish is a favorite both at home and at the restaurants. Cubes of cheese are simmered with fresh peas in an aromatic tomato based curry.
Matar Paneer hails from the northern state of Punjab. Paneer is made with cow’s milk and yogurt and is similar to cottage cheese. The cheese curds are drained, pressed, and then usually cut into cubes. They are used fresh or sometimes lightly fried like tofu before they are added to dishes.
