Mattar Paneer Curry Pack

Serves: 4 – 6 as a side dish Vegetarian

An earthy combination of paneer (Indian cheese), peas and tomatoes. Frying the paneer first enhances the overall texture and flavour of the dish.

Origin of paneer: The story goes that centuries ago paneer cheese was invented by accident. A Rajasthani shepherd was travelling across the desert with milk in a camel skin bag but the milk had curdled and compacted into a block with the whey acting as a preservative. He ate the cheese and drank the whey to quench his thirst.

Try it with: Baby potato instead of paneer or use different types of accompanying veg like spinach, chickpeas or mushrooms.

Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.

  1. Empty pack into a pan with 1 finely chopped onion and 2 tbsp oil. Fry until the onion is soft.
  2. Add 200g (½ tin) chopped tomatoes and continue to fry until oil separates.
  3. Add 250g paneer and 250g peas and cook until tender.
