Matar Paneer Easy Recipe

Why stop at simple green peas? Indulge with peas cooked in spicy tomato sauce and Indian cheese. This naturally gluten free vegetarian dish is prevalent in North India and is typically served with naan bread or roti. Matar paneer has wonderfully blended flavours and can be served with rice making it a healthy vegetarian meal. After tasting this dish in my favourite Indian restaurant I created my own delicious version

Peas are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, fiber and low in calories, making this a healthy diet friendly dish. For a dairy free option substitute paneer cheese for tofu. This vegetarian recipe is outstanding. Check out our gluten free naan bread recipe ->
