This is an excellent recipe!!! I make this VEGAN!!! So delicious! I use Coconut oil in place of the ghee, extra firm tofu for the paneer, and a easy substitute for heavy cream is to use cashew cream: 1 part raw cashew pieces, 1 part water, soak cashews for an hour before, then blend on high until creamy. Add and use as you would cream. I also like a very savory version of this dish so I double the spices, and add a bit more salt than called for. Soooo good! Thanks for sharing, this is delightful!

Now, my favorite Indian recipe! I substituted tofu for the paneer and used the cashew cream option to make this dish vegan. It is perfectly spiced, for me, exactly as written.

this is an excellent recipe. I have made a couple of changes to make it slightly more authentic (being Indian, I like a lot of strong flavours!). Using half the amount of paneer, I used a good heaped teaspoon of all the spices. I also added 3 tomatoes. Instead of adding water, I add a can of chopped tomatoes or even better, tomato passata. This is something my mum has taught me and it add's a lot of richness and flavour to the recipe. (I never add water to an indian recipe). And finally, going against a lot of the weight watchers, I add a good couple of dollops of extra thick double cream and stir this in at the end. Other than that, great tasting dish!

Tasty and Hubby approved!! I doubled the sauce ingredients, since we like it soupier... used canned tomatoes and pureed before adding peas and paneer. I agree flavor is good but light. Think next time will add twice the spices. But a keeper!! Just need to tweek for out palates.

Very nice, I especially enjoyed the taste of the mustard and cumin seeds and the flavor of the coriander.

This recipe was delicious and easy to make! The only change I made was after the tomatoes were softened, I blended the mixture in a food processor to make a smoother gravy. Then I simply added the smooth mixture back to the pan and kept going with the recipe from where I left off. Thank you so much for this recipe! Really fantastic.

Thank you ... Thank you and Thank you! One of the more delicious things I've ever made especially from an online recipe. I changed a few things. Pureed to the tomato and onion after I cooked it so it was more like a restaurant style mattar Paneer. I added even less cream 1/8 cup and it still tastes great.
