Matar Paneer Dhaba Style is a rich and creamy gravy dish that can be served with any Indian Bread or Pulao.
Mutter Paneer is a North Indian gravy made with a rich onion tomato gravy with fresh peas and paneer. Fresh peas and paneer make this gravy an excellent one to enjoy anytime.
When I decided to make some Restaurant style dishes, I had to make this dish as it was something I had recently in one of the restaurants we visited. I normally order Paneer Butter Masala for myself. That day as we had to order another one, we ended up getting this one.
I found it very strange that I am actually sitting here writing when this time last week, all of us were so busy celebrating our BM#100 Meet. It was a fun filled occasion and we are still not completely back to normal yet.
We were supposed to write about the meet this week. However, everybody is jet lagged and whatnot, we just couldn’t work on the post. So we will be posting during the August week 2. My schedule for the whole of this month has again gone for a toss, I was just unable to cook or post for various reasons.
Anyway, I am glad I could break the trend now. This Peas Paneer Gravy is for the final week of BM#102.
