Matar paneer/ Cottage cheese and peas in onion tomato gravy

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.



Panner – 1 cup

Green peas – 1/2 cup ( I used frozen)

Onion – 1 cup chopped

Tomato – 2 medium sized chopped

Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder – 1 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder – 2 1/2 tsp

Garam masala – 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder – 1/2 tsp

Kasoori methi – a pinch

Salt – as required

Cashews – 4 or 5

Oil or butter – 2 tsp


  • Cut panner to small cubes and drop in warm water till use.
  • Heat oil in a pan, sauté onion. When it turns translucent, add tomato and sauté till mushy.
  • Let it cool completely and grind along with cashews to smooth paste.
  • Heat oil or butter in the same pan, add ginger garlic paste. Sauté till raw smell goes, add ground onion tomato paste along required water.
  • Add all spice powders, let it boil till the raw smell goes.
  • Add green peas. Add water if required.
  • Let green peas get cooked. Add required salt and panner cubes.
  • Let the gravy coats well in panner cubes. Add kasoori methi. Let it boil for two minutes.
  • Switch off. Serve with roti or Pulao.




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