Matar Paneer
Ingredients

· 2 tsp oil
· 1tsp cumin seeds
· 2-inch cinnamon stick
· ½ medium onion,
· 1-inch ginger, finely chopped
· 4-5 cloves garlic cloves, chopped
· 1 chilli, chopped (or to taste)
· ¼ tsp turmeric powder
· 1/8 tsp cardamom powder(or 1 black cardamom pod)
· 1tsp coriander powder
· ¾ tsp garam masala powder to taste
· ½ tsp red chilli powder, to taste
· 1tsp salt to taste
· 2 large tomatoes, chopped
· 4oz. tofu, cubed small about ¾ cup
· 1 cup water, more if needed
· 2/3 cup peas
· ¼ cup coriander, chopped

Method
In a medium pan, heat oil on medium flame. Add cumin seeds and cinnamon stick and let it cook for half a minute until fragrant. Add onion, ginger, garlic, chilli and turmeric, and mix and cook, stirring occasionally until golden in colour, for four to five minutes. Add garam masala, coriander powder and chilli powder, and mix well and cook for another 30 seconds. Add in the tomatoes and cook for seven to eight minutes until tomatoes are mushy. Add in the tofu, salt, water, and mix and cook covered on low-medium heat for 12 minutes. Add peas and cook for another 10 minutes, covered and on low flame. Adjust salt, spices and water content and remove cinnamon stick. Continue to simmer for another few minutes if too watery. A bit more simmer time also helps the tofu cook and absorb the spices. Garnish with generous amount of coriander and serve hot with rice or naan.
