“Yet another Indian restaurant staple, this recipe of sweet green peas combined with protein-rich paneer is a substantially satiating side dish. Paneer is an Indian cheese that you can make yourself at home. I use Homemade Paneer (Panir - Indian Cheese). Recipe courtesy Betty Crocker's Indian Home Cooking.”
