Tomato Mutter Paneer!

Its been long time I posted Paneer recipe. Tomato Mutter Paneer is simple and delicious gravy. I have already posted Mutter Paneer previously and my Paneer recipes here. I always pickup the fresh red tomatoes from Little India market.

Tomato - 5nos(Big and deseeded)
Onion - 1no
Frozen Peas - 1 cup
Paneer - 10 pieces(for Homemade Paneer click here)
Ginger Garlic - 2 tspns
Spices - cinamon, cardamom, cloves ; 1 or 2 each
Kasoori Methi - 1/2 tspn
Tomato Ketchup - 1 tablespoon
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tspn
Channa Masala - 1/2 tspn
Milk - 1 cup
Olive Oil - 1 tablespoon
Ghee or Butter - 1 tspn
Cream - 2 tspns(Optional)
Sugar - 1/2 tspn

Preparation Method

  • Chop onion and tomato to medium size cubes.

  • In a Kadai, put little oil and spices, half the chopped onion, ginger, garlic and all the tomato saute till its soft. Allow it to cool and grind to a fine paste.

  • In the same Kadai, put little ghee/butter, oil, spices and fry for a minute. Add onion , saute, kasoori methi for 2 mins.(see notes below)

    • Add tomato paste with little water. Add salt to taste. Keep it in low flame. Keep Stirring.
    • Once its cooked well, tomato puree and allow one boil. Then add milk, mix and boil it.

  • Add green peas, garam masala and red chilli powder mix well. Keep it in low flame.
  • Once its boiled, check for salt and add paneer and mix well. It should be not too thick or too runny. Just semi gravy and blend well. Add sugar and stir well. You can also add a pinch of kasoori methi. Allow it to boil once and off the stove.
  • Top it up with cream if you like or serve just like that.
  • Tomato Mutter Paneer is ready to serve. This can be a side dish for Chapathi, Naan, Kulcha and Rotis (Indian Breads) or Ghee rice.

    Notes - You can also use Garam Masala instead of Channa Masala.
    If you want tomato bites, you can add 1/2 cup finely chopped tomatoes.
    When it cools, the gravy will become slight thick.
    If you feel you dont want more tomatoes you can reduce 1 no and add more ketchup.

    This recipe is going to CC Dish for Loved ones by Sravani.
