DIRECTIONS

  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the paneer and cook, stirring frequently, for 3-4 minutes or until evenly browned. Paneer tends to splatter in hot oil, so be careful. Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • Add remaining oil to the saucepan and reduce the heat to low. Add the cardamom pods and bay leaves and let sizzle gently for 20-25 seconds. Add the onion, increase the heat to medium, and cook, stirring frequently, for 4-5 minutes, until the onion is softened. Add the garlic and ginger paste and cook, stirring frequently, for an additional 3-4 minutes, until the onion is a pale golden color.
  • Add the coriander, turmeric, and chili powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 4-5 minutes. Add the 2 tablespoons of warm water and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, or until the oil separates from the spice paste. Add the 2 cups of warm water and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 7-8 minutes. Add the paneer and peas and simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in the garam masala, cream, and fresh cilantro. Serve immediately.
