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

Amritsari Kulchas with Pindi Chole

Amritsari Kulcha, hearing its name my mouth starts watering and I am sure yours too. Its one of the famous dishes of Amritsar, Punjab ( India). Though, I have never been to Amritsar but had it in Jaipur Rajasthan (India)  for the first time.

Kulchas are Indian flat breads which are similar to naans. Amritsari Kulchas are stuffed variants of regular kulchas and are filled with potatoes, onions, and certain spices.  These kulchas are usually eaten with Chole or Dal.

I usually pair these Kulchas with some Pindi Chole, (the recipe of Pindi Chole will be sharing here in this post). They tastes delicious together and a side of some radish and onion salad is a must have.

So, without wasting anymore time, lets start with the ingredients and recipe of the Kulchas and Pindi Chole.
