Hello Ladies, here is another quick recipe which I make very often. It will take you just 5-10 mins to prepare this recipe.

After marriage, when I had to cook for inlaws without onion and garlic, I used to wonder if anything can be made without the two. From then my hunt started and now I find this type of cooking convenient and easy. Imagine no chopping onions.

So here is one yummy, creamy gravy, I’m sure your kids are going to love it. An excellent lunchbox recipe, if you don’t have time to make rotis have it with Pav/bread.


  • 200 grams paneer
  • Frozen Peas
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 10-15 cashews
  • Chilli powder- 1tsp
  • Coriander powder- 2 tsp
  • Cumin powder- ½ tsp
  • Garam masala- ½ tsp
  • Kasturi Methi- 1 tsp
  • Cream/Milk – 3 tsp
  • Salt
  • Oil


To boiling water add whole tomatoes and cashews. Boil for 2 mins. Then run cold water on it, remove tomato skin and grind with cashews.

In a pan add oil, tomato paste, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and salt. Stir for 2 mins, to this add peas and paneer and cook for another 2 mins with a lid.

Add garam masala, kasturi methi , cream or milk and stir for 1 min and switch off. I use milk.

Hope you like this quick recipe.
