Matar paneer is a popular vegetarian north Indian dish consisting of matar (green peas) and paneer (cottage cheese). This dish is made more often in dinner or for lunch. Some people make it on a special occasion.
You can use fresh peas and if not available can use the frozen one. It's very easy to cook and taste super.
It's cooked in a paste/gravy of onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic and green chillies or sometimes in cream or in a cashew paste. I learned this dish from my mother. She really cooks everything very yummy and tasty and I learned cooking from her.
This dish is often served with rice - plain or jeera (cumin seeds) rice or with an Indian bread (naan, paratha, poori, tandoori roti or roti depending on region). My husband and I normally have matar paneer with poori to celebrate a special occasion.
I personally like matar paneer with jeera rice or with poori. It's one of my family all time favourites.
