Matar Paneer is the ultimate comfort food. It is one of those Indian curries than can be devoured during any time of the year. And for the nation that is obsessed with local cottage cheese aka paneer, matar paneer is one of the most loved curries. It compliments all kinds of Indian bread – flat, deep-fried, baked and almost all variety of rice dishes. This Matar Paneer Recipe is definitely worth bookmarking as it is super quick to prepare. Why? Because it’s done in the pressure cooker.
The Matar Paneer cooked in the pressure cooker has a thick, luscious texture to it and turns out delicious. One reason to use the pressure cooker is quick and even cooking. Second, the gravy and the peas and the paneer all get synced so beautifully after a whistle or two in the pressure cooker. For me, the crowning glory of Matar Paneer is the spicy, semi-dry gravy. And when cooked in the pressure cooker I get the fancied result. I could happily enjoy it for lunch and the dinner along with steamed rice. It has simple onion and tomato base yet it tastes so distinct and finger-licking good.
Every family has their own take on Matar Paneer. I am not claiming that this is how an authentic Matar Paneer is done. The Punjabi Matar Paneer is the deduction of my cooking observations gained at different Sikh households over a period of time. Eventually, I made my moderations to the recipe to get the desired result. Many people prefer using finely chopped onion for the gravy instead of the paste. I often do that too. But if I am too lazy to chop the onion then the onion paste is the best solution. Does it make any difference to the gravy? Yes, it does. The gravy done with the chopped onions is bit coarse and rustic in texture, while the other one is more of a restaurant style. So take your pick!!
I am not a huge paneer lover, but I too have my certain favorites – Kali Mirch Paneer, Matar Paneer, and the Paneer Butter Masala. I think I prefer paneer curries with a creamy texture and the mild spicy tone. Too bold paneer curries are not my thing. Serve Matar Paneer or any other paneer curry with hot chapati/paratha/naan, jeera rice/pulao, raita and the green salad. These elements together make a stunning Indian meal, you must try this combination.
