DSC_0164 (3)

2 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 packet paneer (about 200-250g) – cut into cubes
Frozen peas – about 500g
3cm piece of ginger – finely chopped
3 cloves garlic – finely chopped
2 green chilis – seeded and finely chopped
150ml single or half cream
1 teaspoon garam masala
Fresh coriander – chopped

Heat the oil in a large pan. When hot add then add the cubed paneer and fry until golden on as many sides as possible. Be careful as the paneer spits when frying. Remove the paneer with a slotted spoon then fry the ginger, garlic and chili briefly before adding the peas. Fry until the peas go a nice bright green colour and have defrosted completely then lower the heat add about a teaspoon of salt, the garam masala and the paneer. Stir in a small pot of single cream and heat gently. Sprinkle the coriander over the dish just before serving.
