>>  Sunday, October 12, 2014

Learn how to make Indian curry with green peas and cottage cheese. For the final day of making North Side dishes, I have the favorite Matar Paneer in yet another form. I know I have enough versions still I couldn't resist making this. 

I got this post done in a great hurry, my internet connection failed and I didn't have anything done. I had to get to Amma's place to do this post. So can't write much. Just enjoy this post for now!

I stick to the basic version, never tried adding cashews to the curry. The cashews lend a richness to the gravy.

I like the flavour of kasoori methi in North Indian dishes. It adds a wonderful aroma and a delicious taste.

I usually add almond butter in Indian curries like this -- that is my quick tip to make the dish creamy.
Your matar paneer looks too tempting.
