Grind ginger and garlic into a paste or crush them in a mortar and pestle.
Place pressure cooker on high flame and pour the oil into it.
When the oil is hot, add onions and fry till golden brown.
Add prepared ginger and garlic and stir for a few seconds.
Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt, tomatoes and 1/4 cup water or whey.
Stir occasionally and cook till tomatoes are pulpy and oil separates, for about 5 mins.
Add peas and saute for about 2 mins and add remaining water or whey.
Close cooker and bring to full pressure on high heat, then reduce heat and cook for another minute.
Remove cooker from heat and release pressure by slightly lifting the vent weight.
Open cooker and place it on medium heat and add paneer.
Simmer for about 5 mins and stir in garam masala powder.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
:- Serve hot.
:- I use either "Nanak" brand paneer or any brand of queso blanco (you can find it in any of the mexican stores or at costco). Queso blanco (queso = cheese; blanco = white) is paneer but most brands are salted..
:- You can also substitute paneer with extra firm tofu.
:-As always play around with the spices to suit your mood!
:- I find its tastier if you don¦t fry paneer and its also healthier!
