INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Lbs. fresh or frozen peas, steamed until just tender (about 5 minutes)
  • 2 Tbsp. ghee or butter
  • 1/2 Lbs. fresh paneer
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp. fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander

  • 2 Tbsp. chopped sundried tomatoes
  • 1 cup plain yogurt


INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Steam peas and set aside to cool.
  2. Melt ghee over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Once ghee is hot, brown paneer on all sides in ghee. Remove from skillet and set aside.
  3. Add onion to skillet. Sauté onions until soft, but not browned. Stir garlic and ginger in when onions are almost done and sauté them briefly with the onions. Set aside to cool.
