ingredients

directions

  • 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.
  • Add more oil, if needed, to the pan and throw in the onions.
  • Let them fry until golden, then add the garlic and spices.
  • Fry some more for a couple minutes, then add the tin of tomatoes and about 1/2 cup of water.
  • 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.
  • Check the consistency and simmer some more if needed to bring it down to a thickness you like.
  • Serve with rice and other Indian curries of your choice.

    Amazing! So tasty and you can regulate the heat of this dish really easily by adding or omitting chillies. Didn't have cream or coconut milk but will grab some for another time. O added green peppwra and baby sweet corn as that's what was in my fridge...

    I added chick peas, and spinach instead of frozen peas, it was yummy...

    This is a new go-to recipe. Not only is it super tasty but it's an easy-to-make recipe for a weeknight. I also add in some cayenne pepper to give it a little more heat and like many others sometimes add a bit of cream to the dish. I've also started making garlic naan to eat with it which just doubles how much I love this recipe. The naan does take some extra time but you make and freeze the dough so that it's easy to make on a weeknight.

    We substituted firm tofu for cheese and added 3/4 C. coconut milk at the end. Delicious!

    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!
