i have been always a huge fan of paneer recipes or paneer curries, when it comes to north indian or punjabi cuisine recipes. yet i have a special place to this subtle aloo matar recipe which is an everyday dish in my house. i have a lot of varieties with this simple aloo mutter recipe which includes restaurant style, dhaba style. but this is simple, less fancy curry and can be prepared by even amateur cook. the recipe can be easily extended to restaurant style by adding cashews paste and also full cream. you may add the cashews paste while the curry is cooking and top it with cream once the cooking is completed. i would recommend you to extend it only if you are preparing for your guests and it should be fine for daily use.
