Mutter Panner

Finely chop red onions and tomatoes. Prepare the curry by first cooking the onion with olive oil until brown. Then add the tomatoes and spices - haldi, salt, garam masala and chili.

Cut paneer into cube. You can fry the paneer too (separately) if you wish but you can reduce some oil by just adding in the paneer to the gravy. Add some frozen peas as well. Gently stir for few minutes until the peas are cooked.
