Many many years ago, I found this recipe on the internet. I made it once and fell in love.
Mutter Paneer (sometimes also called Matar Paneer) is a vegetarian curry from northern India. I love it for many reasons. The ingredients are fairly easy to find and it’s quick to make. For the time you put into the recipe, the flavour is incredible.
Over the years I’ve tweaked the recipe, although my version is largely faithful to the original. For me, it’s the ultimate Indian curry. Serve it with rice or with naan bread.
One last note: if you can’t find paneer cheese, you can make your own. Look up a recipe on the internet. It’s a fairly simple cheese to make. The other option is to substitute halloumi cheese. This isn’t ideal (halloumi is harder than paneer) but will do in a pinch.
