Paneer Mutter Masala

Paneer Mutter Masala is again something very special which we would like to order in a restaurant.  Every home cook will have their own version for this gravy with few minor changes.  When it comes to these restaurant special gravies like Butter Chicken, Paneer Makhani etc.
There is always one recipe which I totally depend on is,Varevah.  Almost everybody who watched  his video recipes will definitely start following his recipes.  His videos are always simple and easy to follow and interesting to watch too.  Needless to say his recipe never fails, no wonder he has got so many fans.

Whenever I had these gravies like paneer makhani or paneer mutter masala, I never thought it would be so easy for me to make at home.  Sometimes it makes you feel really good when you are able to recreate this restaurant menu at home.  With big thanks to Varevah for sharing this recipe, let's see how to make it.

Preparation Time:10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients:
Paneer- 100 gms ( diced in cubes )
Peas- 200 gms ( boiled )
Onion- 1 big sized chopped finely
Tomato- 2 medium sized chopped finely
Ginger garlic paste-1 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 2 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Kasoori methi-1 tsp
Cashew nut-4 nuts
Ketchup- 2 tsp
Cumin seeds-1 tsp
Cinnamonstick- 1/2 inch stick
Oil- 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Cream-2 tsp ( optional )

Method:
Boil the peas and keep it separately.  Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and cinnamon stick.  After a minute,add ginger garlic paste, keep the heat in medium and stir well.  Now add the cashews and onions , stir well until they looks transparent.  To get the onions cooked quickly, you can add a little bit of salt. Now add the tomatoes and stir well.  Cover the pan and cook till the tomatoes get soft and mushy.  Now add kasurimethi,chilly powder and coriander powder to it.  Add some water , cover the pan and cook till it looks like gravy.  After few minutes,switch of the stove.  Blend the mixture in a blender until  it's pureed well.  Pour the ground mixture again in a pan and start cooking it in medium heat.  Now add the ketchup and salt to taste.  Add the diced paneer and cooked peas.  Cover the pan and let  it cook for a minute or two.  Finally add the garam masala and stir well.  Just before serving, you can drizzle some cream on top or just serve it without cream with naan or roti's.

Mutter Paneer is one of my favourite dishes, but I rarely make it at home. Always get it at the restaurant, but I'm thinking of making it at home now! Thanks for the inspiration.
