No Butter Buttery Matar Paneer Korma


no butter matar paneer
Call it matar paneer or butter paneer, this is a lip-smacking treat both for the tongue and soul. Don't believe me?

Well, you have got to try this finger-licking, sumptuous, yet healthy no butter buttery matar paneer recipe.

Surprised, are you?

By now, you already know me.

When cooking, all my energies are channelized into striking a balance between health & taste. We all love butter and its buttery, creamy taste, but butter is still not so utterly butterly delicious for health.  Agree! But how many of you are actually prepared to let go off your love for butter for health?

Count me in!


no oil paneer gravy
Health does come first to me and I always try to ensure that my recipes use less oil while not compromising on taste, though this isn't always the case. Some recipes taste really bland without oil/butter.

But I can still manage to eat all that and hubby does not complain either. Lucky me :)

Now cutting the long story short, I have come up with an utterly butterly delicious matar paneer recipe that uses not a single drop of oil/ butter. The taste is so good that every single bite feels divine.

Taking inspiration from Sonal Gupta's oil-free mushroom peas makhni, the recipe uses green peas and cottage cheese (paneer) dipped in a buttery yet not creamy gravy.

Try this healthy recipe (though it does use paneer, which is a dairy product and it's okay to indulge in once in a while) and relish the matar paneer makhni with rice or roti .


So let's come back to the matar paneer recipe:



Ingredients:
1 onion
1 tomato
6-7 garlic cloves
1 inch ginger piece
1 bay leaf (tej pata)
Few kasuri methi leaves
3 tbsp curd
1/2 tsp sugar
1 kashmiri red chilly
10 almond pieces (add almonds in hot water. let them boil for 3-4 minutes, and remove their skin)
250 gms Cottage cheese
1/4 cup green peas (take a bowl, add water and peas and keep it for boiling for 6-7 minutes or longer)
2 tbsp coconut milk (optional) - (I added because my gravy got too spicy)
1/2 cup water
turmeric, salt as per preference

no oil healthy recipe
Procedure:
  • Take chopped onion, chopped tomato,ginger, garlic, curd, almonds, and red chilly and grind into thick paste
  • Take a nonstick pan
  • Add bay leaf and paste

In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
