Aloo Paneer Matar

Aloo paneer matar is a North Indian gravy prepared with potato, cottage cheese and green peas.  They are cooked in the tomato gravy along with the spices. This is the first recipe I made after my wedding so this is always special for me.  It is very easy to make as well as tasty. You can serve this as a side dish not only for roti, kulcha, naan but also for jeera rice, ghee rice…
