Peas and cottage cheese are a made-for-each other duo, whatever be the style of preparation. A seemingly elaborate but actually easy recipe, Mutter Paneer Butter Masala is an ideal accompaniment for rotis and rice too. A masala paste sautéed in butter is further perked up with spice powders, tangy tomato, milk, cream and other ingredients to form a rich gravy that holds the star ingredients – mutter and paneer. The aroma and good looks of this dish make it truly irresistible.

I had a quick doubt. Instead of cottage cheese can I use cow feta, will that make a lot of difference? Can u also skip using dries fenugreek leaves as the place where I live , didn''t fine one anywhere? Thanks

Tarla Dalal    Hi Beena, We would suggest to use cottage cheese and not feta, it will not taste good.

Tarla Dalal    Thank you Pavani for your review. We have tried the recipe a number of times, some mistakes which people make would be to not blanch the tomatoes and then just blend them, but it is very important to blanch. do try it and let us know... Happy Cooking !!!
