Dahi Mattar Paneer (cottage chesse n green peas in yoghurt gravy)

    Today, I'll share a very delectable Panner recipe I recently tried with you all. I found this on Tarla Dalal's site..what an unique recipe, very less spices but tastes just great. With due respect to her creative recipes, I mostly followed her recipe, added a small tomato and green chilli to satisfy my taste bud and superb result. Original recipe is Here.

    Dahi Panner, where dahi is yoghurt/curd, and in here panner or cottage cheese chunks are cooked in a gravy made with lots of youghurt/curd and assorted spices, makes it truly irresistible with hot phulkas for a comfort food.

You Need :
Panner/cottage cheese : 250 gms., cut into cubes
Green peas : 1/2 cup
Onions : 2, medium, sliced
Green chilli : 2, chopped
Tomato : 1, small, chopped
Curd/dahi/yoghurt : 3/4 cup
Flour : 1 tsp.
Sugar : 1 tblsp.
Black salt/kala namak : 1/2 tsp.
Salt to taste

Turmeric Powder : 2 tsp.
Red chilli powder : 2 tsp.(as per taste)

How To :

  • In the same pan, add panch phoron/ five seed mixture, wait till they start to crackle and a nce aroma comes out from the seeds, then add sliced onion and green chillies. Saute till they turn translucent. Then add tomato and saute tomatoes get mixed with onions. 
  • Add turmeric, chilli powder and black salt and saute for 2 minutes. Whisk together curd and flour and add in the pan, lower the flame, so curd doesn't curdle. Mix well with spices, add sugar and salt.
