Mutter Paneer / peas and cheese

When ever we go to a restaurant we make sure to order atleast one paneer dish and I guess mutter paneer is the most frequently ordered one as it is our family's favorite. Mutter Paneer is a delicious curry made of peas and home made cheese .Almost everyone would have tried making this dish and each one gets a different taste. I am posting my way of making this recipe. Please try it and pass on some comments.

Paneer cubes - 1 packet
Peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1 chopped
Tomato - 2
Ginger Garlic paste - 2tsp
coriander powder - 2tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Salt as required

Boil the onion with little turmeric powder and blend to a fine paste and set aside. Make a fine paste out of tomato and keep aside too. Heat oil in a pan and saute ginger garlic paste. After few mins add the onion paste and saute well. Add all the powders and fry for 2 mins. Next add the tomato paste and stir continuously till the oil begins to separate from the masala. Add peas (if you are using a frozen peas thaw them first )to it and cook it for 5 mins . Last add the paneer and little water, cook in reduced heat till the gravy thickens. Mutter paneer is ready. Server with chapati , nan or roti of your choice to enjoy this dish.
