  1. Fry the paneer: Fry 1 block of diced paneer in ¼ cup of oil and set it aside.
  2. Prepare the paste: In the same pan you fried the paneer, add 3-4 onions, 2 inch ginger, 7-8 cloves of garlic, 3-4 tomatoes and ½ tablespoon of salt and saute well. After it cools down, grind it in a mixer and make a fine paste and set it aside.
  3. Prepare the seasoning: In a pan, heat some oil and add 1 tablespoon jeera, 3-4 cloves, 2-3 green cardamom, 1 stick of cinnamon, 4 dry red chillies, 1 bay leaf, 1 tablespoon Bhoj Masale coriander powder, 1 tablespoon Bhoj Masale Kashmiri red chili powder, 1 tablespoon Bhoj Masale red chili powder, ½ tablespoon Bhoj Masale turmeric powder and ½ tablespoon Bhoj Masale sabji masala and saute well. Add the paste prepared earlier and cook well. Adjust water accordingly. Cover and cook until the masala is cooked well.
  4. Bring the ingredients together: Add the 1 cup fresh peas and the fried paneer to the mixture and combine together.
  5. Plate the matar paneer along with some kulcha and enjoy!


  • Add 1 tablespoon of kashmiri red chilli powder to substitute the normal red chilli powder since kashmiri red chilli powder gives the desired colour but does not make it very spicy.
