Paneer Mutter Sabji | Paneer Peas Curry

This is a easy to go recipe for busy mornings & lazy evenings. The pressure cook method reduces the minimum time to about 15 mins & also assured that it's done perfectly.

1 Medium onion diced
2 Tomatoes chopped
1/2 Cup green peas/mutter
10 Cubes paneer 
2 Cloves 
1 Elachi / Cardamon 
Small pies of Cinnamon
1 Tbs ginger garlic
1 Tsp red chili powder
1 Tsp garam masala
Pinch of turmeric
1 Tbs butter 
1/2 cup water 
1/2 Tsp mustard seeds
1 Tsp sugar (optional)
Pressure cooker

Heat a pressure cooker with butter. Add in mustard,cloves,cinnamon & elachi. Next add ginger garlic paste & onions. Fry that for 1min & next comes tomatoes & mutter. Top them with garam masala powder, turmeric, chili powder, salt & water.Close cooker with a lid & cook for 2 whistles.Switch off heat & allow it to cool for 5 mins.
Mean while fry paneer in a nonstick pan till lite crisp (that way you don't have to add some more oil to it).Now remove the lid of cooker & add paneer & sugar to it. Cook for 2 mins on low heat & switch off heat. 

Note : 
1. You can avoid frying paneer & save some time there. 
2. Adding sugar is totally to balance the taste. So it's optional.
