Mattar Paneer

Spicy main meal


Ingredients 8 ounces Bharatama brand Paneer, in ¾ inch cubes
1 small piece ginger, chopped
1 teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons oil
salt to taste
2 medium onions, minced
1 green chili, chopped
1 teaspoon coriander, ground   1 clove garlic, crushed   fresh, chopped coriander leaves   4 ounce tomato             Instructions 1. If you have purchased Bharatma brand Fried, Cubed Paneer, then simply follow the recipe below.

2. If you have purchased Bharatma brand Paneer which has not been pre-cubed and fried, then you must first cube and fry the Paneer. To do so, heat oil to 375 degrees in a deep fryer. Cut Paneer into ¾" cubes and drop the cheese cubes one at a time into the oil. In about one minute, or when golden brown, remove the cubes with a slotted spoon and drain on absorbent paper. Set aside.
3. Heat oil in stir fryer. Stir fry onions, garlic, ginger and chili, add spices. Cook 1-2 minutes then add tomatoes and salt. Gradually add a little water to reduce tomatoes to a puree and cook until the oil seperates from the masala. Add the fried Paneer cubes, and stir well.
4. Cover with just enough water to come one inch above the Paneer mixture, cover and cook gently until the mattar are cooked and the sauce thickened. Serve garnished with chopped coriander and parsley.
