Matar Paneer

Hi, I will be sharing with you all the recipe of dhaba style Matar (Peas) Paneer(Indian Cottage Cheese). For some people who doesn’t know what dhaba is. “Dhaba is the name given to roadside restaurants in India. They are on highways, generally serve local cuisine, and also serve as truck stops. They are most commonly found next to petrol stations, and most are open 24 hours a day.”

I just love Paneer because it blends really well with any other ingredients. I can eat paneer in any form like paneer curries, paneer parantha or paneer sandwich etc.

Peas and Paneer curry is one of the popular Indian recipe. And it’s my husband’s favorite.😊

This is not a restaurant style paneer, it is typically dhaba style so the preparation is bit different but trust me it tastes really awesome. The preparation of dhaba style has no cream, cashews etc. On the other hand in restaurants they use lot of cream, cashews to make the gravy richer and heavier.

I like this style of matar paneer because it is light, easy to prepare and taste amazing.

Let’s start with the recipe of Matar Paneer
