Matar paneer/ Cottage cheese and peas in onion tomato gravy

Web Hosting

Panner is an ingredient which most of the people love ( except my husband?). There are lots of dishes using panner. This is a onion tomato based gravy. This goes well with any roti variety or Pulao.

Notes

  1. I used frozen. You can also use dried or fresh. If using dried soak overnight and pressure cook before adding to gravy.
