Mutter Paneer

When I was kid, I was not fond of paneer, but when I started eating outside and I had no choice other than paneer. When I ate paneer, now think I wasted my many days without paneer.
I make paneer at home which is very low in fat. I post the recipe for paneer as well.

Ingredients :

Frozen peas 1 bowl
paneer pieces 3/4 bowl
onion chopped 2 medium size
tomato chopped 2 medium size

red chili powder 2tsp
turmeric powder 1 tsp
coriander powder 2tsp
jeera powder 2 tsp
garam masala 1 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
green chilies chopped 2-3 (optional)
Coriander leaves for garnish

Procedure :

In wok, pour 1 tbsp oil. once it is heated, add cashew nuts, once it is turn brown color, add chopped onion . And then add salt. If we add salt while sauting onion, it will absorb moisture from it and it cooks well .Then add tomatos. cook well . then add turmeric. and remove from flame. and aside for cool. Once it is cool, grind it in a fine paste.
