This is delicious! I was a little worried at first because I thought it tasted rather bland, but I had made it in advance and when I heated it up for dinner the flavors were perfect!!

Easy and delicious%u2014my favorite combination! I love the mix of flavors from the spices, onion, garlic and ginger! Didn't change a thing and I thought it was perfect as is and bursting with flavor. All four of my kids, age 13 to 6 liked it as much as I did. We served it as a main dish with some cooked chickpeas thrown in with the peas and brown rice on the side.

Great recipe! Made as written, except for cutting back on the red pepper (personal taste). I used a bought paneer from the Indian grocery. Will definitely make again- thanks Sue!

Loved it. Used veggie broth instead of water. There were no leftovers.

Awesome. Matar Paneer is my favorite Indian dish and this recipe does not disappoint. I made my own paneer (holiday weekend and all the gourmet groceries were closed) and used Penzey's garam masala. Second only to Taj Mahal II in Columbus, OH!

The sauce was a bit runny so I cut out the water and added 1 Tbsp of tomato paste. I also replaced paneer with firm tofu, and followed the steps accordingly. This is a great recipe and would definitely be repeated!

This was really yummy. Just the right proportions of peas, to paneer, and I liked that it didn't have a soupy gravy like some mattar paneers (just a personal preference.) This dish is really delicious even without frying the paneer cubes and using just one tbsp of ghee (which is how I made it.) I like my peas to remain bright green and a little firm so I added them about three minutes after the paneer. Thanks for posting.

This was just wonderful. Just as good as the stuff I get from the local Indian restaurant. I followed the recipe exactly-- the only change I made was to be a little extra generous with the spices. We made this with queso fresco cheese (from Spain), as that's all we could get here-- worked perfectly. Almost exactly the same texture as paneer.
