Ingredients

Milk

4 cups

Green peas

400 grams

Lemon

1

Ghee

2 tablespoon+ to deep fry

Onions

2 large

Ginger

1 inch piece

Turmeric powder

1/4 teaspoon

Red chilli powder

1 teaspoon

Coriander powder

1 teaspoon

Garam masala powder

1 teaspoon

to taste

Method
Boil milk twice on high heat and add juice of one lemon. The whey will separate from paneer. Drain the whey, tie up paneer in a muslin cloth and hang it up all day to allow excess water to drain away. Place the muslin with the paneer under a heavy weight to ensure that all the moisture is squeezed out. This will flatten the paneer into a flat round cake when removed from the muslin. Cut the paneer into strips or cubes. Heat sufficient ghee in a kadai and deep-fry till light brown. Drain onto an absorbent paper. Peel, wash and chop onions and ginger finely. Heat two tablespoons ghee in a pan and add chopped onions and ginger. Saut till lightly browned. Add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, salt and peas and cook, adding a little water, till the peas are tender and a little gravy remains. Add the fried paneer, garam masala powder and boil for five minutes. Serve hot with chappatis.
