Paneer is our favorite and have been making different variations of gravies with it. I love fresh fenugreek leaves and Methi Matar Malai is such a delicious gravy. Taking inspiration from it I prepared this simple Methi Paneer Peas gravy with Kasuri Methi leaves. Since I didn’t have access to fresh methi leaves I made the gravy with Kasuri Methi leaves. I have made Chapathi with Dried Kasuri Methi leaves as well. You can check the recipe here.
This Methi Paneer gravy doesn’t require any onion or garlic. It is a change from the regular Tomato base masala we usually use for Paneer and other sidedishes for Roti. I couldn’t take step by step pictures when I prepared it for lunch yesterday. Shall definitely add the pictures whenever I make it again
- If you are adding fresh fenugreek leaves, you need to first saute them with a pinch of salt and turmeric and then add it to the gravy
- If you don’t have Green Peas you can omit it and if you want you can even add Sweet Corn to the gravy
- I keep it real simple without adding any other veggies like capsicum or tomato or onion. If you want you can add more veggies too
- The same Methi Paneer Peas recipe works well with Tofu as well. Omit Paneer and add Tofu, Peas, Kasuri methi leaves
Our Sunday Lunch was a very simple Ghee Jeera Rice prepared in Instant Pot, Green Moong Bean Masala and Methi Paneer Gravy. The following measurement serves two.
