    A fabulous vegetarian curry, which I got off a blog, -- taste and fall in love! You can add a finely chopped hot chilli if you want to spice it up.

    1. 1
      Put a little bit of oil in a deep, heavy bottomed frying pan and brown the cheese, turning frequently so no sides burn. When it is browned, set aside on a plate.
    2. 2
      Add more oil, if needed, to the pan and throw in the onions.
    3. 3
      Let them fry until golden, then add the garlic and spices.
    4. 4
      Fry some more for a couple minutes, then add the tin of tomatoes and about 1/2 cup of water.
    5. 5
      Let simmer for about five minutes, then put in the fried cheese and peas and simmer covered over a low heat for about 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      Check the consistency and simmer some more if needed to bring it down to a thickness you like.
    7. 7
      Serve with rice and other Indian curries of your choice.

      I just finished making this tonight. My first time making any kind of Indian food. So....after I practically licked my plate clean I decided to review this recipe. This is such an easy recipe and the flavours of the spices blend beautifully. I used Nanak Paneer that I purchase from an Indian grocery store (that brand was recommended to me by an Indian lady I work with. Can't wait to have the left overs for lunch tomorrow! The only change I made was to add a splash of cream just at the end, gave it a nice creamy texture.

      Excellent. I added a half cup of cream as one reviewer suggested and it was awesome. I also don't know how this could be called bland. I'm wondering if some reviewers have the wrong spices or forgot something. Also I found a great and easy Garam Masala recipe online so search that name and then you can make your own no problem. Thanks for the recipe!

      I deep fried the paneer because I always have trouble with it sticking to the pan. I kept half of it out of the sauce because I knew it would ruin the crispiness, but I wanted to see what it would be like. It was much better crispy. I also let it cook a little longer than I should have and the peas were overcooked. The sauce had good flavor, but was a, somehow. Probably my fault, but I wouldn't make this again.
